扶輪第2930地帶已經成立〝卡翠娜救災基金〞Katrina Relief Fund,它是一個國際扶輪之國際扶輪基金會所核准的〝捐贈者 建議計畫基金〞Donor Advised Fund (DAF),該基金係用來協助川流不息而來的扶輪社員捐款,使其能順利支助美國南方卡颶風災難的受害者。

Rotary zones 29 and 30 have established the Katrina Relief Fund, a donor advised fund (DAF) with The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International, to help streamline the flow of contributions from Rotarians looking to assist victims of the hurricane disaster in the southern United States.

捐贈者建議計畫基金(DAF)是為個人及與扶輪有關的團體,諸如扶輪社、地區及地帶而設的一種創新的基金,用來設立一個獨立扶輪基金會投資帳號,特別指定用於慈善捐款。

A DAF is an innovative way for individuals and Rotary-affiliated groups, such as clubs, districts, and zones, to create a separate investment account with the Foundation that is earmarked exclusively for charitable giving.

2930地帶在美國南方與中西部12州,涵蓋了24個扶輪地區,所有的區域都被〝卡翠娜〞颶風所蹂躪。

Comprising 24 Rotary districts in 12 southern and Midwestern U.S. states, zones 29 and 30 include all the areas devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

在此兩個地帶的領導階層成立的委員會將與當地的扶輪社、地區共同成立緊急救災單位,以儘速舒解受災地區的人民的需要。

A committee identified by the leadership in the two zones will work with local Rotary clubs and districts, as well as emergency relief agencies to meet the most pressing needs of people in the affected areas.

在支票的備忘欄上(MEMO LINE)要特別指名為〝卡翠娜救災基金〞(KATRINA RELIEF FUND)。所有支票應該填寫下列收件人姓名地址並寄到:

Mr. Clint McGowan, TRFDAF

The Ayco Company

855 Route 146, Suite 120

Clifton Part. NY 12065 

Checks should be earmarked for "Katrina Relief Fund" (in the MEMO line) and made payable to "TRF DAF". All checks should be addressed and mailed to:
Mr. Clint McGowan, TRF DAF
The Ayco Company
855 Route 146, Suite 120
Clifton Park, NY 12065.

所有捐款到這帳戶的錢只能以美金貨幣存入,美國公民可享有免稅之優待,但捐款到卡翠娜救災基金將沒有其他扶輪基金會之獎勵。

Contributions to this account can only be accepted in U.S. dollars and are tax deductible for U.S. citizens. No Rotary Foundation recognition will be awarded for contributions to the Katrina Relief Fund.

該基金之理事包括國際扶輪理事Robert Stuart;國際扶輪剛卸任前副社長John Germ;扶輪基金前總經理Duane Sterling;前地域扶輪基金協調人Donald Collette,以及扶輪基金鉅額捐獻顧問Kenneth Schuppert

Directors of the fund are RI Director Robert A Stuart Jr.; Immediate Past RI Vice President John Germ; Duane Sterling, a past general manager of the Foundation; Donald Collette, a past Regional Rotary Foundation Coordinator, and Kenneth Schuppert, a Major Gift Advisor for the Foundation.

該基金之理事們會一起以其優異的經驗與能力來承擔救災基金管理人的責任,包括了法律、工程、電力系統、災難計劃的管理和監督基金。

Together, the directors bring outstanding experience and qualifications related to their responsibilities as custodians of the relief fund, including law, engineering, electrical power systems, management of disaster programs, and fund supervision.

What The Rotary Foundation means to me now and for the future


If TRF’s meaning is to give, then I am proud to be part of it.  The Rotary Foundation gives me opportunities not only to share my money but also to share my time, wisdom, commitment, care and effort with others in the world. Because I understand that "What is important is how much of yourself you put into the giving. That is what makes the living sublime."  So I will keep giving my time and talent and improve the quality of other people’s lives with the help of The Rotary Foundation.


「假如扶輪基金的意義就是給予,我很高興我歸屬於扶輪。」扶輪基金給予我的不僅僅只是有機會與人分享金錢,也要與世人分享我的時間、智慧、承諾以及我們的關心與努力。因為,我深曉“重要的是你自己究竟給予了多少?那就會使你的生活昇華了多少。”因此,我應經由扶輪基金來獻出我的時間、才能與智慧去改善他人生活的品質。
