We feel the responsibility to take on causes that range from international to local.  Some are club level commitments whereas others are championed by visitors to our club which we support based on availability of funds.
We collect and disburse donated funds through our foundation (Rotary Club of Potomac-Bethesda Foundation), a 501c organization.  Therefore, contributions to the Foundation are tax deductible based on applicable US laws.

What's Happening
"Alan, Thank you for giving so much of your time to organize and implement the Dictionary Project again this year.  Your dedication to improve literacy where you live has had a profound impact on the children in your community.  Your kindness and support show what community service looks like.  Please let me know how we can implement your ideas to include more people.  You are always welcome to visit our office when your travels bring you to South Carolina.  Sincerely, Mary French, The Dictionary Project Director"

Believe in Belize (https://believeinbelize.org) provided major funding for the shipment of a 40’ container from the United States to Dangriga, Stann Creek through a collaboration with their partner Medical Equipment and Supplies Abroad (MESA) Foundation, Inc. (https://rotarydistrict6600.org/MESA).
The container provided hundreds of items worth thousands of dollars donated by different organizations and individuals in the US.
