On 29th May, Past President Gill announced "Mal's Challenge" to our Club and his desire to help build up our Club Trust by an additional $100,000!  
Read more to find out why and how you can help make this happen by 31 March, 2019.
 
At the Annual General Meeting this past week, members were presented with the various distributions made last year by our Club Trust to individuals and organisations in our community. These distributions and donations help change peoples lives. Fundraising is an important aspect of any service organisation as money is needed to do good work. We can either raise funds through events such as celebrity dinners/auctions, etc. or if we have enough capital to invest, we can use the interest earned to support our Causes.
 
Since the announcement of Mal's Challenge, we have received donations and pledges of $20,000. Mal has already committed $10,000 and is willing to bring it up to $50K if members are able to donate the remaining $30,000 by 31st March 2019.
 
All donations made to our Club Trust are tax deductible and members will receive a receipt from our Treasurer Grant Hally.
 
If you would like to make a donation, you may do so directly to:
ROTARY CLUB OF DOWNTOWN AUCKLAND INC. CHARITABLE TRUST
Account: 12-3252-0053102-00
 
Feel free to contact Lucy or Grant Hally if you have any questions on the above.   
 
This is a great opportunity for us to double the size of our Trust and to leave a legacy for future programs to help those in need.
