Annual District 5240 Rotary Foundation Gala Announced!

We are happy to announce that our incoming Rotary International President Ravi Ravindran has agreed to serve as our Keynote Speaker at our District’s Annual Rotary Foundation Gala.

It continues to be our District’s tradition to honor and recognize not only our generous donors, but also the many beneficiaries of our gifts to The Rotary Foundation each year.

This year we will come together in celebration at the beautiful Reagan Library on Friday, January 30th.  The event will coincide with the ever popular and meaningful STEPS Conference to be held on Saturday, January 31st.   More information on each event is forthcoming.  We hope each club will reserve a table for 8 that evening and consider sponsoring Interactors and/or Rotaractors to help expand their view of Rotary.

Lastly, I would personally love to chat with you about some special opportunities available to you in support of the Rotary Foundation.  One, is to become a Major Donor today, simply by spreading out your gift over a 3-year period.  What can be better than that!

In addition, there are many ways you might consider a significant legacy gift that will be beneficial to you and will ultimately “DO GOOD IN THE WORLD”.   When you become a new Major Donor or a Bequest Society Member or when you consider the next level you will be personally recognized by RI President Ravi that evening with beautiful recognition crystals and pins for your generous support.

Please call or email me anytime to discuss the ways that will work best for you.  My contact info is: Telephone: 805-238-4264 or rotarybrenda@gmail.com.

Yours in Rotary service,

Brenda Cressey, Endowment and Major Gift Chair
RI District 5240 and RI Zone 26
