Great news - we have reached our target and then some!

We thank our anonymous matching donor for the gift of $10,000, and thank each and every donor who got us to this point. District 6450 has great Rotarians who realize the importance of supporting The Rotary Foundation's campaign to End Polio Now!

With matching from the Gates Foundation and all of our local matching included, we have now raised over $137,000!

Why I am fundraising for The Rotary Foundation
The Pioneers for Polio Campaign seeks contributions from Rotarians and non-Rotarians to make the dream of a polio-free world a reality.

Please support this campaign, and at the same time celebrate the fact that Rotary Foundation Trustee Jennifer Jones has been nominated as Rotary International President for 2022-23, with a donation in her honor.

Please donate in an amount significant to the End Polio campaign or to Jennifer's leadership.

How about:
$35 - protect 10 children from polio
$112 - Jennifer will be RI's 112th President
$500 - the funding gap for eradicating polio is $500 M
$2,022 - the year Jennifer will be installed as President

All funds raised are matched 2:1 by the Gates Foundation.

Rotarian donations of $50 or more receive triple matching points for Paul Harris Fellowship recognition, up to 60,000 total points.
