On Monday 26 August, Roger Parmenteau outlined the Shuswap Community Foundation’s place in our community. It is a charitable, not-for-profit organization that contributes leadership and financial support to community initiatives. He described how funds are generated and how they are distributed. The endowment funds fall into two categories: Discretionary & Dedicated.  The first supports community projects; the Dedicated Funds are donor directed, to either a specific charity or an educational institute. 
Last December, District 5060 International Chair Carol Eamer received a request for $3000 USD to purchase books for a school library in La Cuesta, a small village in southern Honduras. Carol passed on the request to District 5060 clubs, five of whom responded. The Rotary Club of Salmon Arm donated $500 USD to this project.
