Our primary concern in the first year is membership growth and the creation of the endowment. Updates on our progress will be provided below.
The Fellowship is seeking volunteers to serve as Membership Coordinators in each of the 48 Rotary Zones (including Sections). They in turn will be responsible for identifying one District Membership Coordinator in each of the 536 districts. That alone would bring our membership number to over 580 members!
Rotary International has set the new fundraising goal for the Peace Center Endowments at $150 million. We as a fellowship would like to do our part by establishing our own named endowment. The initial requirement to create the endowment is $25,000 which we will raise by recruiting 100 supporters to donate at least $250 each to assist in its creation. We would like to have this completed by the end of the calendar year so that we can grow it further prior to the International Convention in Atlanta. Larger goals will be set in accordance with the RI Peace Center Endowment levels as we progress.
If you would like to be one of the initial supporters, please email the chairman at Chairman@RotarianVeterans.org for more information. No funds will be collected until we have commitments for at least the minimum $25,000.
Donations are eligible for Foundation Recognition Points. While the Fellowship will collect the funds, a Multidonor form will be submitted that includes each supporter to ensure credit is received.
