Dear Club President, Club International Service Director (IS Director), Club Rotary Foundation Committee (CRFC) Chair,

Let me begin by introducing myself. I am a Past District Governor (PDG) from District 5060, (the Okanagan, B.C. & the Columbia Basin in Washington). However I joined Rotary in Prince Rupert and did spend from 1968 to 1999 in District 5040. I am currently an Assistant Region Rotary Foundation Coordinator (ARRFC) for Zone 24 (W). There are three of us helping to look after seven districts in Zone 24 (W).

I hope that I can help your club by answering or finding the answers to any questions for you as they relate to The Rotary Foundation. I will also provide you with up to date information from time to time, as it becomes available.

Today I am passing along two new resources now available for order through the Rotary web site at: Just type the brochure # in the search box, it will pop up and you can order it.
  1. New Legacy brochure, which replaces the beige Bequest Society card, the green Securing the Future brochure and the Benefactor cards. This is a new “all in one” for any legacy gift commitments to the Foundation’s permanent fund. (Benefactor gift commitments are$1000-$9999 and Bequest is $10,000 and greater)
  1. New Major Donor brochure. It expands upon the key items identified in the “Ways to give” brochure and quotes some of our Major Donors reasons for giving. There is no better time for Canadians to gift to Polio than the present- to take advantage of the gift match by both the Canadian Government and the Gates Foundation.

Please feel free to contact me at any time.

Best Regards, Derek.

Derek Bottomley, PDG
Assistant RRFC, Zone 24 (W) 2012-13
372 Okaview Road,
Kelowna, B.C., V1W 4K3,
