Our meeting in February is on Thursday 18th at the usual time of 5.00pm when our speaker will be Eric Schmelling - General Manager & Chief Philanthropy Officer at Rotary International headquarters in Evanston.

Eric leads the area responsible for facilitating contributions to The Rotary Foundation, which grants more than $300 million annually to eradicate polio and funds projects and scholarships in communities worldwide. His team focuses on implementing fundraising strategies for the Annual, Endowment and PolioPlus Funds, including all donor acquisition, retention, recognition and stewardship efforts.

Eric has over 25 years of fundraising experience and strives to support a culture of giving within Rotary. He is a member of the Rotary Club of Evanston Lighthouse, a multiple Paul Harris Fellow and a Benefactor.

As always, this meeting is open to all, with the joining details in the January 2021 Rotary GB&I Service News.


There will be limited time for questions so please send yours to Steve Munns  by Monday 15th February.

If you have ever wondered how the Endowment Fund can help to support projects in your district, Eric is the person to ask.
