We donated $100,000

to Polio Plus

The New York Rotary Foundation has set an example of leadership and generosity!

 

Jack Blane from the International Polio Eradication Fundraising Committee of Rotary International, District Governor Bob Benson and Two Times Past District Governor Chuck Katze visited our club when the New York Rotary Foundation donated $100,000 to Polio Plus on April 29th, 2003. On the picture from left to right are President Silvio Amori, Two Times PDG Chuck Katze, Jack Blane from RI, Trustees Barbara Burns, Bernard Wytko and Richard Sainburg, Foundation Chairman Morton Eydenberg, DG Bob Benson and Trustee Sylvan Barnet.

One week later at Rotary International's Headquarters, in Evanston, IL, Jack Blane and Matts Ingemanson met with Glenn Estess, who will be Rotary International's President 2004-2005. Glen was impressed with the $100,000 donation to Polio Plus by the New York Rotary Foundation of the Rotary Club of New York, which is approximately $500 per member. RI President Nominee Glenn said that the Rotary Club of New York with its Foundation has set an example of leadership and generosity that he hoped others would follow.

 

"I was expecting to go and be part of a photo op where I would receive a large cardboard replica of the check," says Jack Blane. "What I didn't expect was to come away with a real check for the total amount.

 

"The trustees of the New York Rotary foundation feel very keenly about supporting this last push and enthusiastically agreed to the $100,000 donation," says Morton Eydenberg, chairman of the New York Rotary foundation. "The members of the Rotary Club of New York have also expressed their support for this donation and are proud to lead the way for other Rotary clubs around the world."
