What Makes Rotary Special

There are many things, but one thing that sets Rotary apart from other organizations is the Rotary Foundation. With November being Rotary Foundation Month, let’s review why a donation to The Rotary Foundation is a wise investment. 
First, as stated on the Rotary Website, The Rotary Foundation is recognized as one of the most effective and well-managed charitable organizations in the world, with 12 consecutive four-star ratings from Charity Navigator and an A-plus rating from CharityWatch.

Il y a beaucoup de choses, mais une chose qui place Rotary à part d'autres organismes est la Fondation Rotary. Depuis novembre étant le mois Rotary de Fondation, passons en revue pourquoi une donation à la Fondation Rotary est un investissement sage. 

D'abord, comme indiqué sur le site Web Rotary, la Fondation Rotary est identifiée en tant qu'un des organismes charitables les plus efficaces et les mieux gérés dans le monde, avec 12 estimations quatre étoiles consécutives de navigateur de charité et une estimation A+ de CharityWatch.
