Akron Rotary has officially launched a Rotary Interact club with North High School. There were 16 students in attendance for the kick-off and they are very excited about the opportunities for themselves, their school, and their community & city. The club’s launching perfectly coincides with the Rotary Interact District gathering which will be taking place at Cuyahoga Falls High school on Saturday, November 4th. A team of students from North is looking to attend with over a hundred other students from all over Northeast Ohio. Once we have the details in place you will be hearing how you can help make a difference. The club meets every other Wednesday from 3:30 -4:00 at the high school.
 
Take care,
Steve

Congratulations and Thank You to Akron Rotarian John Daily on becoming the newest member of the Arch Klumph Society

Named after the sixth president of Rotary, the Arch Klumph Society recognizes The Rotary Foundation's highest tier of donors — those who have contributed $250,000 or more during their lifetime.

Membership in the Arch Klumph Society is lifelong. Along with recognition pins and pendants, members receive several other benefits commensurate with their generosity.

Recognition

Each member has the opportunity to have his or her portrait placed in the Arch Klumph Society Gallery, located on the 17th floor of Rotary International World Headquarters in Evanston, Illinois, USA. Portraits are etched on glass plaques, which are back-lit to create a stunning display of our Foundation's most valued supporters.

What your giving supports

Your giving promotes peace, fights disease, provides clean water, saves mothers and children, supports education, and grows local economies through grants that:
  • Bring peacebuilding seminars to 200 teachers and 1,300 students in Uganda.
  • Distribute insecticide-treated mosquito nets and medical services that help prevent malaria in Mali.
  • Train teachers who are establishing an early-childhood education center in South Africa.
  • Provide water filters, toilet blocks, and hygiene training to prevent fluorosis in a community in India.
  • Fund a scholarship for a medical professional to research ways to minimize mortality rates among premature babies in Italy.
  • Protect children around the world from polio.

History of the Arch Klumph Society

Arch C. Klumph founded the Rotary Club of Cleveland, Ohio, USA, in 1911 and was the 1916-17 Rotary president. Addressing the 1917 convention in Atlanta, Georgia, he eloquently promoted the idea of "endowments for the purpose of doing good in the world."
 
That year, the Rotary Club of Kansas City, Missouri, made the first gift, of $26.50, to the fledgling fund. When the endowment had grown significant enough to require administrators to manage it, The Rotary Foundation was born, and Klumph was selected as one of its first trustees.
 
The Arch Klumph Society was created in 2004, during Rotary International's centennial celebration, as a meaningful way to recognize the Foundation's highest-level donors. The society's first dinner was held the following year. Today, members' portraits, engraved in glass plaques, hang in the Arch Klumph Society Gallery at Rotary International World Headquarters.
