Another challenge grant will match Rotary donations two for one
In June the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced it would donate up to $50 million a year for three years to match Rotary gifts. That means if The Rotary Foundation reaches the $25 million goal for three years, it will bring in $225 million.
The Gates Foundation’s effort started in 2007 and could exceed $1 billion.
Meanwhile, The World Health Organization of the United Nations, reports only ten new cases of wild polio this year thru September 22, six in Afghanistan and four in Pakistan. There are no new cases this year in Nigeria, which had been one of three infected countries.
