With deep sadness, we feel the plight of Ukraine and its people.  When someone is suffering, we reach out to help. Rotary International, a service organization, is doing just that and is calling us to help those in need. The Rotary Foundation (TRF) is moving quickly to provide grant funds for the relief effort in Ukraine and for those fleeing to other countries.
 
In response, the Elmbrook Rotary Foundation (ERF) Board of Directors agreed to match individual Rotarian contributions up to USD $15,000. In the past months our Elmbrook Rotary Foundation has sent more than $34,000 to The Rotary Foundation Disaster Response Fund to support relief efforts in Ukraine and the Ukraine refugees. This includes member contributions and the full $15,000 ERF match.
 
Thank you so much to everyone that has donated! This is a great response, and we can all feel proud of our Elmbrook Rotary Club!
 
The Rotary Disaster Response Fund has received more than USD $13 million through April 30, 2022. Any contributions made after April 30 will be used by the Disaster Response Fund for disasters throughout the world and not just Ukraine.
 
Thank you!
