The Charitable Foundation of the Johnson County Rotary Club was organized in the mid-1990’s for the purpose of funding special projects that aid people.  Emergency situations (national or international) and long-range projects requiring matching grants often happen with little time to raise money. Having a charitable foundation that grows annually and is invested enables our club to fund these special projects.
Our own foundation is currently valued at approximately $30,000 in invested funds and has been used to fund special projects on several occasions in the past two years.  The foundation is governed by an elected board of directors made up of four past presidents, two members at large, the president-elect, president and past president of the club.  
It is time for this year’s elections; the following slate has been nominated and needs to be voted in before the new Rotary year.  Election of the board will take place this Thursday, June 7 at the regular Rotary meeting. 
This year’s nominees are past presidents- Rod Fager, Dave Gras, John Ruo and Larry Williams. At-large candidates are Mark Rawie and Bill Robinett and club officers are Joe Morris, Jeff Shore, and Pam Stockman.  Election of this board will be Thursday, June 7 at the Rotary meeting.
Current Charitable Foundation officers are Larry W – chairman, Dave G – vice chair, Bill R – secretary and Rod F – treasurer.
