May 19 - Rotary Foundation

 
Our own Bob Laux presented a program about the updates to Rotary Foundation.  One of the biggest changes is that Districts have more control.  There are six areas of focus which are * peace & conflict resolution, * water & sanitation, * basic education & literacy, * disease prevention & treatment, * maternal & child health, and * economic & community development.  
 
Some of the highlights included a review of the EREY (Every Rotarian Every Year) program, how to give as an individual or club and the SHARE program.  The SHARE program is annual giving and stays in investment for a minimum of 3 years at which time the available grant monies are distrbuted 50% to district and 50% to global.
