Howard has done an exceptional job as our District Foundation Chair for the past three years! Howard was instrumental in coming up with District Funds to match club funds donated to the Rotary Foundation Disaster Relief Fund – this led to our district donating over $182,000 to the Rotary Foundation Disaster Relief Fund in support of Ukraine. Additionally, some clubs in District 5020 have been donating to other agencies and clubs overseas, working directly with the Ukraine people.
Most recently, AG Anil Puri (Area 160), with Howard’s help, successfully applied for one of the Rotary Foundation Disaster Relief Fund Grants. They have been awarded $25,000 to send to the club they are directly working within Poland. These funds will go towards food and medical supplies.
As if this was not enough, Howard “walks the talk” and recently became an Arch Klumph Society Member. Named after the sixth president of Rotary, the Arch Klumph Society recognizes The Rotary Foundation’s highest tier of donors — those who have contributed $250,000 or more during their lifetime.
Congratulations, Howard and thank you for your leadership!
