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.

Is it the truth?
Is it fair to all concerned?
Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
