Our District 5150’s Annual “Every Rotarian Every Year (EREY) Fundraising Campaign” is underway. Through this Campaign, we support The Rotary Foundation’s Annual Fund Share where almost half of the donations go back to our Club as District Designated Funds (DDF). Our Club makes the decision how to use DDF, either for a District Grant supporting community service projects, a Global Grant, or to contribute to other TRF funds. This year the EREY Fundraising Campaign sets a target for each District 5150 Rotarian to contribute $250. Through our Annual Fund Share contributions, Rotarians ensure that we will continue to “Do Good In The World.”
When you donate to the Annual Fund Share, you have the opportunity to submit EREY “tickets” for a drawing for Visa Gift Cards. The Grand Prize is a $2,000 Visa Gift Card! The lucky winners will be announced at our District 5150 Rotary Foundation Showcase on November 19, 2022! A total of $6,300 in Visa Gift cards will be awarded. To enter the drawing, the deadline to submit your EREY tickets is Saturday, November 12, 2022.

The second exciting way to add value to your Annual Fund Share donation is available only to Rotarians who are not Paul Harris Fellows. A non-Paul Harris Fellow who donates between $100 and $250 to the Annual Fund Share will receive a one-to-one match of Paul Harris Recognition Points. What does this mean? If you donate $250, you will receive 250 Foundation Recognition points which is half of a Paul Harris Fellow. 

For EREY tickets, please contact our Club's TRF Chair - Jim Patrick.
Should you not wish to participate in the EREY drawing, we encourage every Rotarian to make at least a $25 gift to TRF. Keep in mind that in order to qualify for Best Club, every member of our Club must donate at least $25 to TRF. You have until March 15, 2023 to make any gift to TRF. Please contact TRF Chair Jim Patrick for assistance and information.
