Nearly 9,000 members of Rotary from across the globe attended the Jubilee Audience at the Vatican in St. Peter’s Square on 30 April 2016 at the invitation of Pope Francis.  
At the end of the Audience, a delegation of Rotary members - led by Rotary International President K.R. Ravindran - met Pope Francis where he emphasized the importance of vaccinations against polio and urged Rotary to continue.
Pope Francis follows Paul VI and John Paul II in connecting with Rotary to encourage their support of a more peaceful and compassionate world.  
 
 
 
 
Foundation Minute for Week of May30th
A unique way to promote Rotary and help support The Rotary Foundation is to carry a Rotary International credit card.  Just by using it you’ll be helping the Foundation “do good in the world”!
 
A portion of each purchase you make will be returned to the Foundation at no additional cost to you.  The Foundation received more than $8.6 million from the program since it was launched in 2000 including $3.6 million to support polio eradication.  In the US a royalty of 0.25% is paid on all purchases made with the card.  Outside the US, the royalty percentage fluctuates from 0.05 – 0.35%.
 
The Foundation is not only the one that benefits.  As a card carrier you enjoy 1% cash back on every purchase and 2% cash back at grocery stores and 3% cash back on gas for the first $1500 in combined purchases in those categories each quarter.  Bank of America donates $75 toward polio eradication with every activated account.
 
For information click onto Bank of America – Apply and refer to the disclosures accompanying the online credit application. 
 
Thank you for supporting The Rotary Foundation.
