Make Donations

December 2016
Dear Ann Arbor Rotarian:
The links on this page will allow you to make your charitable donations using your credit card or PayPal account. For background information, please refer to the letter with 1-2-3 bill you should have received recently. A copy of the letter is available here. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact Dave Keosaian at
Community Service Assessment (Invoice #1): As a condition of your membership, you are required to pay annual dues and a Community Service Assessment (CSA). Your dues were paid earlier in 2016. Your CSA donation is due by the end of December. The amount is $200 and covers the entire 2017 calendar year. For payment of the CSA online, there is a $6 surcharge to cover the cost of processing.
The Permanent Fund of the Ann Arbor Rotary Foundation (Invoice #2): Donations to the Permanent Fund are optional. Donations are credited toward membership in the club's Sustainers' Society.
Donations and planned giving beyond the level of the Sustainers Society are also welcome. Contact Dave Keosaian for details.
The Rotary Foundation (Invoice #3): Several options are available as listed below.
Every Rotarian, Every Year (EREY): The Rotary Foundation (TRF) suggests a donation of $100 but, of course, any amount is appreciated. Contributions to EREY are credited to the $1000 needed for a donor to achieve the first or next level of Paul Harris Fellow (PHF). On the web page, this option is shown as "Annual Fund and SHARE."
PolioPlus: Contributions to PolioPlus also result in credit toward a PHF. Donations here also qualify for two-for-one match from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The TRF Permanent Fund: Like the Ann Arbor Rotary Endowment, TRF also maintains a permanent fund with gifts held in perpetuity. Only the proceeds of investments are used. Your donations to this fund earn credits toward Benefactor status which is first achieved at the $1000 level. Donations in this category are not eligible for credit toward a PHF.
Learn more about TRF's stellar rating from Charity Navigator. Note also that TRF has recently received the Outstanding Foundation Award from the Association of Fundraising Professionals. Click here to learn more.
Thanks. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact Dave Keosaian at
