India is the third largest contributor after USA and Japan
Major Donors in the past year have increases from 23 to 45
VISAKHAPATNAM: India aims to gain second position in contributions to Rotary Foundation in 2011-12 when an Indian will become the Rotary World president, Rotary Regional Foundation Chairman Dilip R. Salgaocar has said. Addressing a seminar organised by District Rotary Foundation RID 3020 here on Sunday, he said with contributions of $12 m the country had surpassed its target in 2009-10 and was third behind the USA ($100 m) and Japan (between $15 m and $16 m). In 2008-09 it was behind South Korea. India now targeted to take its contribution to around $14 m.
Emphasising the Rotary goals of doing good and its invaluable contribution to eradication of polio the world over, among other causes, he said Rotarians should give as much as they could and as Mother Teresa said “until it hurts.” Lauding the contribution of the district 3020, he said during last year alone it had increased its number of major donors from 23 to 45 and complimented them and past district Governor Ch. Kishore Kumar. The district's per capita contribution of $70 was equal to that of the Zone V and more than the national average of $53, he said.
Dr. Damodar Reddy said for the first time coordinators had been appointed to encourage members to donate.
