In 2006, then-Director Jerry Hall established a Zones 26 & 27 Endowed Fund for Peace and Conflict Resolution through The Rotary Foundation. The fund goal was $500,000 which would fund a “Peace Chair” every fourth year.
Now, as the result of years of mostly DDF giving, we are just $62,000 from reaching this goal. At the 2022 Trails to Peace Institute, 12 Rotarians pledged a total of $21,000 and District 5520 pledged $10,000 in DDF to the fund - half of the remaining $62,000 needed.
You and your Districts have an opportunity to help reach our goal by making individual contributions or District DDF transfers. We ask each District to consider transferring at least $3,000 DDF (or or any amount the District chooses) to Endowed Fund E10557 “Zone 26/27 Endowed Fund for Peace and Conflict Resolution.” Click HERE for the online DDF transfer form. 
Individual Rotarians may contribute using The Rotary Foundation Contribution Form (123-EN) and entering fund number E10557 in the “Endowment Fund” space.
