News from the Rotary Foundation

Posted By rotary

Is it TRF or TRMF? Well, actually it’s both. There are times when it gets a little confusing. TRF (The Rotary Foundation) is Rotary’s International Foundation supporting all the programs of RI including Polio Plus, scholarships, vocational training teams, district and global grants all aimed toward six areas of focus. Paul Harris credit is given for contributions to this Foundation. In our club, each member’s $25 contribution added to the quarterly club statement grows to $100 (Sustaining Member) level and further grows to $1,000 (Paul Harris Fellow) level. EREY (Every Rotarian, Every Year) is the goal of TRF and our club. TRMF (Tuscaloosa Rotary Memorial Foundation) is our own Club’s local Foundation and supports brick and mortar projects in Tuscaloosa. The club’s current project is Caring Days new facility. $100,000 has been paid to this organization thanks to the generosity of our Rotarians. Check out a list of all the local projects supported by our club. It is impressive! While no individual recognition has been given for contributions to this Foundation, the Foundation directors are studying recognition possibilities and more will come later. Make room in your budget for both extremely worthy Foundations, TRF and TRMF.
