District Development - December 13 - District Committees Part I


Zone 32 Presents: The 70+ Initiative

The initiative is a tax efficient way for Rotarians to support The Rotary Foundation. You can make a difference today and save on taxes when you support The Rotary Foundation through your IRA.
Why Consider a Charitable Gift via an IRA?
  • Your gift will be used today, allowing you to see the impact during your lifetime.
  • You pay no federal income taxes on the transfer.
  • The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions.
  • Fulfill existing pledges or use your IRA to make a new three-year pledge, and receive recognition in the pledge year to achieve Major Donor or Arch Klumph Society.
  • There could be opportunities to establish a named fund with gifts or commitments of $25,000 or more.
  • Know as a trusted steward of your gift, The Rotary Foundation will use your investment to help make the world a better place!
  • You are encouraged to seek the advice of your financial and/or legal advisor to determine if this is the best strategy for you.
Planning for the Future? An individual retirement account can also be used as a tax-wise giving strategy if you’re considering including The Rotary Foundation in your estate plans. To include the Foundation as a beneficiary, please use the legal name and federal tax ID listed below. Legal name: The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International Legal address: 1560 Sherman Ave, Evanston, IL 60201-3698 - Federal tax ID number: 36-3245072.

Rotary Basics 

There is always something to learn about Rotary. That is the nature of a dynamic organization responding to change. And we have had our share of change!
Join us via Zoom on February 17, 2022 from 5:30 – 6:30 for an interactive overview of Rotary Basics.
We will highlight the basics of Rotary International and its philanthropic arm, The Rotary Foundation, as well as offering resources available through our District 7390 and your local Club. Initially promoted as a new member orientation, this one-hour recap is appropriate for any Rotarian or prospective Rotarian, regardless of tenure.
With 1.2 million Rotarians around the world, there are nearly that many opportunities to engage. We want to help your Rotary passion burn bright!
