The world needs Rotary and YOU now, more than ever before.
You are making a difference. A case in point is the incredible support for helping Ukraine through the Disaster Relief fund of the Rotary Foundation, which now exceeds $13 million.
District 5495 made a donation of $10,000 in District Designated Funds in April to the disaster fund. The district amount matched an equal amount approximately contributed by clubs throughout the district.
The current amount raised globally as of May 25 totaled $13,182,470. The amount includes $10,136,104 in outright gifts, and $3,036,365 in District Designated Funds.
An impressive statistic is that the total amount contributed from Zone 26/27 – of which District 5495 is a member of – represents 19.5 percent of the total outright giving from across the world to the Disaster Relief Fund.
Zone 26 contributed $935,036 and Zone 27 gave $1,046,176 for a total of $1,981,212.
Thank you to all Rotarians in District 5495 for your support of the Ukraine Disaster Relief Fund.
