LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT

I want to remind our donors that it’s not too late to offset your 2021 personal income tax obligation to the State of Arizona by making a tax credit donation to our Qualifying Charitable Organization.  Our QCO code is 20698.  Donations made by April 15 can be used to offset 2021 or 2022 tax obligations – but not both.
While tax credit donations are our most common donation, since we are a 501(c)(3), we would love to see growth in the donations we receive from commercial and private charitable funds and foundations, family trusts, etc.  
Our fiscal year begins July 1.  At the end of February, we were 65% of the way through this accounting year, but we had already funded 82% of what we funded last year in vocational education grants.  Ninety percent of our grants have benefitted students planning to enter medical-related vocations.  
Unfortunately, we are not seeing similar growth in revenue.  We see huge potential for growth in this area.  We are an organization that was started over 30 years ago by Rotarians.  We are still managed by Rotary volunteers, keeping our operating costs low.  Tremendous growth potential remains for our revenue, not only from Rotary Clubs and their members, but the world beyond Rotary is virtually untapped.  
To date, this fiscal year, the Mesa West Rotary Club is the top giving club in the state, with donations totaling $14,817.  Mesa West still has lots of room to grow – only 37% of their members have given so far this year.  
What can you do to help?
  • Show your pride in helping others help themselves – enthusiastically let your circle of influence know they too can help!   Make it easy for them to give – email or send them the link.
  • Consider making a regularly recurring donation by choosing that option on our online donation form
Why do we want to bring in a lot more income than we are currently receiving?
  • We need to increase our maximum available grant from the current limit of $2,000
  • We need to target our growth
    • We need to do a better job of serving rural communities in our state
    • We need to enable students to study in higher-cost programs that will give them better earning capacity when they complete their certification program
We are very thankful for the support you have provided in getting us to where we are today.  We hope you will help us become an even better resource in the future!
