Fundraisers Do Work!!

  
RC of West Kelowna Daybreak puts on a fantastic “Taste of India” Fundraiser April 7 and raises money for much needed community programs
like the Boys and Girls Club.  Look at that amount raised...$29,250
Job well done!!

Rotary Club Central Foundation Goals… Why?

 You have all heard the quote that “if you don’t set any goal, you will hit it with 100% certainty!”  As Club leaders we may wonder why we should be taking the time to set goals in Rotary Club Central for things like membership growth, service projects, or foundation giving.  Well consider these two facts courtesy of Zone 32 Foundation Coordinator Ron Smith: 

*  Clubs that set and reported Foundation giving goals reached an average per capita

giving of $123, which is approximately 120 percent higher than clubs that did not

report a goal.

 

*  Roughly 30 percent of clubs that didn’t set a goal were non-contributing clubs at

the end of the Rotary year, while only eight percent of clubs that reported a goal

were non-contributing clubs. 

These alone should be enough to make us want to set ambitious and realistic goals every year!  These facts and many others were taken from a recent issue of the Zone 24+32 newsletter “Beyond Borders”, the March 2018 issue (**See below).

** Beyond Borders past issues can be found at:  https://portal.clubrunner.ca/50077/sitepage/beyond-borders-newsletters/welcome-to-zones-24-32-newsletter-page

 Thanks again!
