District 5810

      August 9, 2023 was a tragic day the residents on the Island of Maui. The fires across the island have changed lives forever. Truly devastating. Our sympathy, thoughts and prayers are with everyone impacted.

      As people of action, we can take immediate action. As we come together to recover and rebuild, we need to support each other. 

      If you would like to help, donate directly to the Rotary District 5000 Foundation which is a special relief fund for the fire victims. Charitable contributions to this organization are tax deductible. Click Here to Donate.


We are seeking donations of 10,000 books in English for kindergarten through 5th grade for the Books Brigade to Mexico this fall.
In addition, we are seeking school supplies or donations to buy school supplies and Days for Girls Hygiene Kits ($11 each).
Books, school supplies and check donations can be brought to the September Roundtable (Sept. 9th) and the October Roundtable (Oct. 14th) at the Scottish Rite Hospital in Frisco. School Supplies Needed: Pencils, Pens, Crayons, Scissors, Geometry Sets, and Glue Sticks. Remember our goal is 10 pallets that will be sailing on Carnival Valor in November. Note we would appreciate your donations by Oct. 15.
DG John Curtis and DGE Regina Edwards will be bringing these supplies to the Yucatan on a Carnival Cruise in November 2023.
Thank you for your Support!

The RCPC Foundation
From Nolan Duck, President-Elect of RCPC and President of the RCPC Foundation - 2023-24
The Rotary Club of Park Cities' Communities Fund was originally sponsored in the 1960’s by the Rotary Club of Park Cities (“RCPC”) for the purpose of providing an enduring legal entity through which members and friends of the Rotary Club of Park Cities might make donations for the good of mankind and the Dallas community. The fund continues to this day to consider internal and external grant requests submitted on the RCPC Foundation online grant portal found on the club website.
The following grant requests were approved at our November 2022 meeting: 
      • $1,000 grant for scholarships for Hillcrest High School for scholarship to honor RCPC long term member C.C. Collie
      • $5,413.44 grant for Equest
      • $6,000 grant for the Agape Clinic
The Executive Team denied the following grant request:
      • Addison Midday grant request for Genesis Women's Shelter  
The fund balance as of November 30, 2022, was $1,710.729.17.  The Communities Foundation of Texas manages the RCPC Foundation Fund.  The amount available each year for grants is derived from an average over 16 quarters (4 years), then, 4.5% of that amount is the amount available for distribution the following year.  
Our Sgt. at Arms Kathy Wall for 2022-2023, reported that the RCPC Foundation Fund donations thru 11-30-2022 totals $9,116.00 from 37 donors!
                To the Foundation Fund:                   $9,116.00 from 37 donors
                To the Bonton Clinic:                        $200.00 from 1 donor
Your contributions make an incredible difference in the amount we are able to distribute to worthy local organizations.
Please consider making a contribution today.

The Four Way Test
The Four-Way Test
of the things we think, say or do
Is it the truth?
Is it fair to all concerned?
Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
