Dare To Dream - www.daretodreamfilm.com

The Rotary District 7620 Project Trust Fund intends to own and produce a broadcast-ready documentary about the Rotary leaders who had the courage and vision to believe that Rotary could eradicate the wild-polio virus from the entire world. We are looking for strategic partners in the production of a documentary about these little known heroes who have already changed our world for the better in ways that most people today can’t imagine.

 

Disaster AID USA - www.disasteraidusa.org

DA USA is a Rotarian Operated Project. We provide shelter, clean water systems, tools, mosquito nets and other items to survivors of disasters.  DAUSA also partners with others to provide water filtration projects wherever needed.  We vow to be completely transparent and welcome inquiries about how we use donations. We are partnered with Disaster Aid Australia, and Disaster Aid UK and Ireland.

 

Melwood -The Melwood Vehicle Donation partnership with Rotary District 7620 is Great news for Club Fundraising.

Starting now, your club has access to a no-cost fundraising platform in the Melwood Vehicle Donation program.  Melwood handles the program advertising, the vehicle pick up and towing, the sale at auction and provides the donor with the IRS receipt for their tax deduction.

We will the split the proceeds of the sale at auction:  35% to Melwood, 65% to the District. From the District portion 40% goes to The Rotary Foundation annual fund and Polio-Plus and 60% to the Rotary club identified by the vehicle donor.   What does this mean in dollars and cents?

Melwood has set up a website:  http://goo.gl/dL3Pji   and a toll free number to call in for donations 1-844-686-7620.  All you need to do is let everyone know about this great opportunity to help Rotary “Be a Gift to the World” through their donations.  Should a vehicle be donated by a Rotarian, they would be able to earn Paul Harris Points on the Club share amount of their donation.  All Club share funds must be used for charitable projects and reported to the District Melwood Vehicle Donation chair Earl Copus.  ECopus@live.com  240-603-0617.
