Our Rotary Foundation
Could You Be An Area Community Grant Chair?

Do you believe strongly in The Rotary Foundation?  Do you have experience working with the District/Community Grants section of the District Website?  Are you interested in helping clubs if they have questions about The Rotary Foundation and the District/Community Grants process?  If so, GIVE ME A CALL!

Your District Foundation Committee is hoping to create “Area Community Grant Chairs” by geographic location.  Each Area Chair will serve as the liaison between the clubs and the D6900 Community Grants Chair.  This will be an opportunity to work with the committee at the District level and to increase ones knowledge and passion for The Rotary Foundation.

We are still in the early stages of planning so Area Chairs can participate in finalizing their job description and determining what area they would serve.  If interested, please contact me as soon as possible.  I can be reached at gkleggett@att.net or via text to 404.202.2409.  (Text is easier and then we can set up a time to talk.)
