  44. 53. Presidential citation requirements District 1010 Assembly 2011
  45. 54. <ul><li>100% Annual Programs Fund participation (every active member personally contributes some amount between 1 July 2011 and 31 March 2012) and </li></ul><ul><li>US$ 100 minimum per capita in club contributions to Annual Programs Fund </li></ul>Same as requirement for EREY recognition

  49. 58. Who decides how the funds? are spent? – Clubs! <ul><li>What goes depends on clubs, supported by the Districts, and working within the framework of the programmes as set by the Trustees </li></ul><ul><li>Humanitarian projects are all club service projects, made bigger with Foundation grants </li></ul><ul><li>GSE teams are brought together from club nominees </li></ul><ul><li>Ambassadorial scholars and peace fellows are nominated by clubs and selected by Districts </li></ul><ul><li>Foundation’s role is to facilitate, not to manage </li></ul>
