The board of The Rotary Vocational Fund of Arizona is always motivated when we get letters like this one.  We would like to share it with Rotarians during this final season of giving for this Rotary year.  Since donations to TRVFA qualify for Arizona Tax Credit as a Qualifying Charitable Organization, they may be able to make this kind of difference in someone's life without it costing them anything:
Dear Members of the Rotary Club (of Pebble Creek),
Back in June of 2019, I interviewed with your board as I was seeking financial assistance (from TRVFA) as I was interested in completing a nursing assistance program through the East Valley Medical College in Mesa Arizona. 
I am happy to report back to you that I am not only a graduate of the program but I am duly licensed through the State of Arizona as Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). I am actually now working in my new role at Abrazo Hospital- West Valley Campus in Goodyear Arizona.  
I am enjoying my new position so muchthat I am actually exploring the possibility of training to become a surgical technician in the near future.  I would like to offer my profound gratitude for your generosity through your financial assistance as you have improved the quality of my life so much.
For that I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart.
With Gratitude,
Elisa's "financial assistance" was a grant from The Rotary Vocational Fund of Arizona.  The grant was sponsored by the Pebble Creek Rotary Club as a result of her successful interview with them last June.  Sponsoring clubs do not have a financial obligation.  The purpose of having local clubs interview the applicants for TRVFA grants is to have local Rotarians get an impression as to whether the candidate is likely to complete their course of study and be likely to be successful in their new vocation.
