Today's Program:
The Rotarian Foundation of Livermore - Our Shared Foundation Supports Our Community
We welcomed fellow Rotarian and 2023-24 President of the Rotarian Foundation of Livermore, Bassant Abdelrahman, who provided an overview and update of the Foundation's work. Bassant focused on the importance of the Strategic Plan, begun in 2022 and spanning 3 years, that will guide the work of the Foundation and enable this organization to serve even more people in our community.
Together with the Rotary Club of Livermore, we share the Rotarian Foundation of Livermore - RFL - a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that allows us to do even greater work in our community than working as a single club can facilitate.
