Today's Chuckle
January is Vocational Service Month in Rotary
Arizona Rotarians have a unique opportunity to support this Rotary Avenue of Service by donating to
The Rotary Vocational Fund of Arizona.
Donated funds support vocational education grants for those who meet low-income guidelines.
Donations may not actually cost the donor anything in the long run since
TRVFA is an organization which meets
Arizona's Credit for Contributions to a Qualifying Charitable Organization requirements.
Their QCO Code is 20698.
The amount of a donation can typically be deducted from Arizona state income tax liability for 
up to $400 for an individual or $800 for a couple filing jointly.
CLICK HERE to donate to TRVFA on-line
or to download a form you can mail with a check, CLICK HERE.
Donations made between January 1 and April 15, 2020 can be used to offset Arizona State Income Tax liability for the 
2019 or 2020 tax year (but not both).
The Most Efficient Way to Support The Rotary Foundation
The Rotary Foundation is the charitable arm of Rotary that enables the amazing work we, as Rotarians, are all proud to be a part of.  Every Rotarian is strongly encouraged to support TRF every year by donating to the General Fund of TRF.  The target gift is $100 per year per member.  That has been the target for a very long time and in the US the average family income has multiplied a few times since that target was set.  Many Rotarians who have the means to do so have set their personal target at the $1,000 per year mark making them eligible for the Paul Harris Society level of donor recognition. 
The End Polio Now campaign is a separate fund to gifts are matched by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  Many Rotarians choose to support both the general fund and the fight to end polio.
No matter what level you decide to donate, please support the Foundation by giving through Rotary Direct.  CLICK HERE to get answers to commonly asked questions about this program.  DOWNLOAD A FORM to authorize your Rotary Direct donations.  By giving through Rotary direct, the opportunity for human error is eliminated and recognition credit for the Rotarian and their club is much more accurate and timely.
