Incoming Rotary Foundation Trustee Speaks at Lander Club

 

Incoming TRF Trustee Speaks at Lander Club;
Encouraged by Giving During Pandemic
 
Despite the impact of the worldwide Covid pandemic, overall giving to The Rotary Foundation for the last six months of 2020 decreased just 2% from a year earlier.  Directed giving, much of it for projects focused on Covid-related issues, was up 41%, Larry Lunsford, an incoming member of the Board of Trustees of the Foundation, told the Lander Rotary Club at its March 10 meeting.
 
Lunsford, a member of the Kansas City Plaza Rotary Club in D6040, said he was encouraged by the level of giving in the face of the pandemic.  Thanks to continued strong giving and higher investment earnings, the Foundation was able to fund more than $32 million in Covid-related projects, Lunsford told the club.
 
Lunsford also was encouraged by recent “very strong momentum” in Rotary’s polio eradication campaign, especially in Pakistan and Afghanistan, the only two remaining polio-endemic countries. [Thus far in 2021, only two cases have been reported there.]
 
The Rotary Foundation has achieved a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, a premier evaluator of charitable organizations, for 13 consecutive years, a feat matched by just 1% of all ranked organizations, he said.
 
Lunsford was D6040 District Governor in 2001-02.  He served as a Rotary International Director in 2013-15 and will begin a four-year term on the TRF Board of Trustees on July 1.  He is a former Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar (Australia 1982) and is a recipient of the Service Above Self Award.

The Rotary Club of Lander, Wyoming has donated $3500 to support the Lander Senior Center’s Meals on Wheels program, the First Stop Help Center, and to the Good Samaritan Community Meal program which is sponsored by the Lander United Methodist Church.

 
“Lander Rotarians are committed to serving those in need in our community and we are pleased to provide support to these essential local programs. In this difficult time, we will do whatever we can to make sure our fellow residents who need a helping hand or a hot meal are able to get that help.” said Lander Rotary Club president, John Brown.
 
The Lander Rotary club raised the funds for these contributions through donations from club members and other members of the community as well as from grants awarded by Rotary District 5440.
 
Brown presented the checks to Jane Nolde, Executive Director of the Lander Senior Citizens Center; Deanna Trumble, Executive Director of the
First Stop Help Center; and Deanna Trumble and Lucy Cone representing the Good Samaritan Community Meal on December, 31st, 2020.
