Kirsten McIlvenna
Kirsten McIlvenna, Program Officer for the Bay Area Community Foundation, spoke to Rotary on Tuesday about the upcoming "Give Local Bay" fund raiser.

Scheduled for May 7, 2019 the 24 hour program gives the community a way to go on-line and contribute funds to local organizations.

  • Mark May 7 on your calendare so you receive a reminder on Give Local Bay to donate.
  • Follow Bay Area Community Foundation on Facebook for updates and posts you can share with your friends and family.
  • Visit , find an organization you want to support, and click on the button that says "fundraise" to set up your own profile to raise money from friends and family on their behalf.
  • To to to see how you can help your favorite nonprofit win additional funds.

    Any organization that maintains an endowment with the Community Foundation can be a participant. The objective is to raise funds for the organization's endowment. But there are also incentives and contests. Those raising the most money get incentive money added to their total.

    The incentive pool provided by the BACF is $25,000 this year. The more money an organization raises, the higher their incentive payout. It's all based on a formula that insures a fair distribution of the money.

    Contests provide another way to pick a quick $250 prize, or two. Those contests range from getting the first donation, to selfies, to the most unique donor, and many others. Check their web site for details.

    The majority of the (tax-deductible) donations will be in the form of an on-line credit card payment. Other forms of payment will be accepted at the BACF office, but won't count toward the 24 hour prizes.

    The club was saddened to learn of the passing of long time member Bob Sherman last week at the age of 95. Bob was a loyal member of this club for 54 years. His funeral was last Tuesday.

    The Tall Ship Celebration is coming to down in mid-July. As always, Rotarians will fill a number of volunteer jobs. See Nancy Greve for details and to volunteer.

    Cindy Chadwick passed out raffle tickets for the upcoming Golf Outing. Members are asked to either sell those tickets, or to purchase them. The prize will again be an I-pad computer with AirPods.

    Hey Rotarians! It's almost time for the "Mitten State Music Revival" on May 11. Tickets are $10. Check out for an article about the Revival.

    The club will meet off-site on these dates:
        June 4
        June 18
        July 30


    At the board's direction, these Breezes, the club web site,
    and the member database will be dropped as of July 1, 2019.

    Replacing these systems, used for the last fifteen years, will be the Club Runner program. If there are features of the current system that you like or rely on, be sure to ask board members or incoming administration if there will be a replacement for that feature.
