Foothills Rotary contributions to Polio Plus are matched $2 for every $1 contributed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  Our club has had 2 outstanding years of contributions.

In the year ending 6/30/17, we contributed $12,741 to Polio Plus.  This resulted in a total contribution of $38,223!  Most of these contributions were due to Chris Richmond.  He rode his bike across the country to raise money for Polio Plus.

For the current year to date (7/1/17 -2/12/18), we have contributed $31,084 to Polio Plus.  This has resulted in total contributions of $93,252!  Most of these contributions are due to the incredible gift of appreciated stock by Mike Sanders to Polio Plus.  Our contribution amount will increase by the proceeds of Purple Pins. 

We have had an amazing 2 years.  Our club is helping to eradicate polio.
