Rotary Contributions to The Ukraine
In response to the deepening humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, The Rotary Foundation has created an official channel for donors around the world to contribute funds to support the relief efforts underway by Rotary districts and has designated its Disaster Response Fund [] as the main avenue for contributions.
To this end, The Rotary Foundation has approved:
Now through 30 June 2022, designated Rotary districts that border Ukraine and the Rotary district in Ukraine may apply for grants of up to $50,000 each from the Disaster Response Fund. These expedited disaster response grants can be used to provide relief to refugees or other victims of the crisis including items such as water, food, shelter, medicine and clothing.

During this same period, other impacted Rotary districts that wish to offer support to refugees or other victims of the crisis in their district can apply for $25,000 grants from the Disaster Response Fund.  To read the entire notice, click here.

Additional ways to contribute:
IF you wish to donate to help the Ukrainian people, these are three organizations you could contribute to,

The 2022 4th of July Parade's Grand Marshal is Donna C. Pierce.  She was an influential and well-loved teacher in the Highland Park ISD for forty-one years.
Parade Theme
United We Serve
The 4th of July Parade is just around the corner!
There are lots of opportunities to volunteer for the parade: pre, day off and post parade.

Planning to be at the Parade?
Walking Marshals and Stationary Marshals are needed!  The larger need is for volunteers to walk the short mile and half, mostly level trek from the Highland Park Town Hall to Goar Park and make sure the children chasing the thrown candy and trinkets keep a safe distance back from the floats, vehicles and horses passing by. Walking Marshals will assemble, at 8:00 a.m., the parade starts at 9:00 a.m. and the walk takes less than an hour.

The RCPC Foundation
From Jeff McNaughton, President-Elect of RCPC and President of the RCPC Foundation - 2021-22
The Rotary Club of Park Cities' Communities Fund was originally sponsored in the 1960’s by the Rotary Club of Park Cities (“RCPC”) for the purpose of providing an enduring legal entity through which members and friends of the Rotary Club of Park Cities might make donations for the good of mankind and the Dallas community. The fund continues to this day to consider internal and external grant requests submitted on the RCPC Foundation online grant portal found on the club website.
The grant request approved at our May 2021 meeting includes:
$4000 grant for scholarships for Hillcrest High School graduating seniors
The Executive Team denied the following two grant requests:
  1. Children First
  2. Family Compass
The Executive Team voted to roll over the remaining $7,152.81 available grant monies until the 2021-22 fiscal year, which starts on July 1, 2021. 
According to the Fund’s Policies and Procedures dated November 8, 2011, Section 11. Tenure; Removal   Non-Ex Officio members of the Executive Committee serve four year terms. The Executive Team recommended to the RCPC Board that Daniel Drabinski replace Cleve Clinton as a Non-Ex Officio member of the Executive Committee. The RCPC Board unanimously approved his nomination. His term will be held from 2021-2025.
The fund balance as of May 11, 2021 was $1,847,218.00 (almost $400K higher than this time last year).  The Communities Foundation of Texas has done an incredible job managing the fund.  The amount available each year for grants is derived from an average over 16 quarters (4 years), then, 4.5% of that amount is the amount available for distribution the following year.  
Our Sgt. at Arms Kyle Marmillion, reported that the RCPC Foundation fund donations thru 4-30-21 totals $62,822.10 from 89 donors!
                To the Foundation Fund:                   $6,422.10 from 37 donors
                To the Bonton Clinic:                        $56,400.00 from 52 donors
Your contributions make an incredible difference in the amount we are able to distribute to worthy local organizations. Please consider making a contribution today.
