Dear San Mateo Rotarian,
Over the past several months, we recognized our many Club members who achieved Paul Harris award status last year.  This signifies their tremendous support of the International Service efforts of the Rotary Foundation and our Club.  

We encourage you to invest in this year’s International Service efforts by participating in the Every Rotarian Every Year (EREY) campaign.  EREY will run from NOW, October 20 – November 14.  

We are asking all members to contribute at least $25.  You will impact many lives.  There are two ways to give:

  1. You can donate online by clicking the DONATE NOW button at the top of this page.

  2. You can send a check payable to the San Mateo Rotary Foundation.  Please send your check to:

       The Rotary Club of San Mateo, P.O. Box 95, San Mateo, CA 94401



All EREY donations are returned to our Club as District Designated Funds (DDF).  This money supports Global and District Grant projects identified by our Club’s International Service Committee.  DDF funds help Rotary grow local economies, fight disease, boost basic education, and combat climate change, for just a few examples.  

Last year's DDF supported projects in Ecuador (Business Development and Microcredit Loans) and Peru (Greenhouses) that were sponsored by our fellow District 5150 clubs.  In 2019 our club's DDF supported the Global Grant we sponsored in Guatemala.

To encourage EREY support:

  • Our district (5150) is offering a 1:1 match for contributions from $100 – $250, so…if you donate $250 you will receive 250 recognition points: at 500, you’re halfway to Paul Harris recognition!
  • Our district will conduct its annual drawing on November 20th.

  • The grand prize is a $2,000 VISA gift card; there are other gift card prizes in the amounts of $750, 2 at $500, 4 at $250, etc.

Let’s support International service efforts and make an investment in EREY!
