NOT AN OFFICAL ENTITY OF ROTARY INTERNATIONAL
The Rotary Foundation launched Rotary Grants, Formerly known as the Future Vision Plan, on July 1, 2013.
LEVEL OF CONCERN, SURVEY RESULTS
The Rotary Foundation's Future Vision Program is scheduled for worldwide rollout on July 1, 2013. Based on surveys posted on various Linked In discussion groups, a substantial majority of Rotarians are supportive of the roll out, or at least prepared to give the program a chance. However, there is a significant percentage of respondents who have expressed concern. Surveys were taken in the Rotary International Official Group, The Rotary Foundation Group, the Paul Harris Fellows Group, and the Major Donors Group. While it is impossible to say with certainty, it is a reasonable assumption that the lifetime history of financial support for the Foundation probably increases from group to group. If this is true (it most certainly is for the Major Donors Group), the survey results indicate that Rotarians with advancing levels of "skin" in the game have expressed the highest level of concern.
It is often said that the Future Vision Train is leaving the station, and that Rotarians, Clubs, and Districts may either get on board or be left behind.
Does The Rotary Foundation really want to risk leaving a large number of financially supportive Rotarians on the station platform?
