TRF Training Seminar

The Rotary Foundation Seminar Program, 26th -27. September 2019, Gdansk

This seminar addresses all those who want to use the resources of The Rotary Foundation more effectively – to be the inspiration for a better world. We will look at key elements of good Rotary grants, strengthen our commitment to ending polio and supporting peace, and learn how to better inspire our donors. The seminar is particularly useful for chairpersons and members of District Rotary Foundation Committees.
