The Rotary Foundation Canada receives major estate gift

“We all have a responsibility to help.” These are the words of Marion when she was asked about the recent legacy gift to the Rotary Foundation Canada from her late husband Keith.
With high praise to his home Rotary club in Ontario; a membership that was more like family to them both; Keith passed away in March 2021 with a named gift to Rotary in his estate plans. Marion and their two children will now have the opportunity to see Keith’s legacy in action through their named endowed funds to two of Rotary’s areas of focus: Water, Sanitation and Hygiene and Maternal and Child Health. 
Marion recognizes the potential for this gift’s impact from their past travels with Rotary to help with cleft palate surgeries in Venezuela, wheelchair distribution in Panama and to witness the benefit of water wells installed in Africa. Soon to be inducted into Rotary’s Level 3 Arch Klumph Society (AKS).
The Arch Klumph Society is named after the Founder of The Rotary Foundation, it is the highest level of Donor recognition offered. Keith and Marion will also have the honor of being the first AKS for their home District. Consider that if your Rotary club or district is applying for Rotary Foundation funding for a global grant in either of these two areas in the future, you may very well receive a portion of Keith’s gift to enable your project.  His endowed gift will make an impact now and forever.  
Rotary is grateful to the thousands of devoted friends, leaders and problem solvers whose generosity provides perpetual support that enables the Foundation to do good in the world beyond their lifetimes. How will your legacy change the world?
