Rickenbacker International Airport

Central Ohio is America's best kept secret as an international logistics hub. But the secret is getting out. Rickenbacker International Airport plays a key role bringing air, ocean, rail and trucking modes together with 85 million square feet of warehousing and distribution space and efficient highway connections that bring us within one day’s truck drive of 1/2 of the U.S. and 1/3 of the Canadian populations.

We are happy to report that the Columbus Rotary Foundation Annual Services Campaign is off to a great start.

As of today 73 donors have pledged $ 51,601 toward the campaign.  That represents 33% of our membership. 
An additional $6,800 will be available from our October matching program.  Thank you for getting us to $58,401 in our first weeks of the campaign.  

Our Match program ends on October 31.  Any dollar amount over what you donated last year will be matched from this fund of anonymous donors.


This pin will be bestowed to those who have given $500 or more to the campaign.  This amount is the average donation from our previous campaign.  A list of these donors is included.

I Dare You
Following a tenant of his Presidential speech, Chip has introduced this pin that we will use to award to members this year for meeting his call to action.  He first asked that you check in on someone not on the Monday Zoom call.  That's something we should do each week. 

This week's Dare - Make a Pledge to the Annual Campaign in October.
