President's Challenge

President Ces is urging Oakland Rotary to support his goal to have every member of our club donate to The Rotary Foundation (TRF) and achieve 100% participation by December 31, 2020.  If we can do this, Ces has committed to giving $50,000 to TRF.  No donation is too small and the $25 minimum donation can make a big difference.

President Ces would like all members to experience the joy of giving, by supporting Rotary's local and international projects. Reminder - our club dues do not go to TRF or ORE; rather they go to the Club to pay the Club's operating expenses.
