District 1's total (individual and club) contributions are $14,811. While overall donations to the Foundation are down 1.7%, our district individual donations are up 31%; and while club donations are down 11% over the same time period last year, we do have one less club this biennium.
Our biennial goal is $60,000. Given the history and timeline of giving within the district, we are certainly in line with achieving this goal, but we will need all members and clubs to support the Foundation to do so. In addition, we want to continue to meet the long standing goal of having all clubs within our district donate to the Foundation and increase the number of clubs that have 100% member donation. Last biennium, three District 1 clubs were recognized at convention for the latter achievement. There is no doubt in my mind that we can meet or exceed that accomplishment.
