Rotary in Motion (RIM) Facts

 

 

What is it?

  • RIM is a one-time, annual opportunity to donate money in support of the Rotary Club of Hilton Head Island’s charitable projects and to receive a tax-deduction and/or other benefits.

How did this program originate?

  • RIM is the brain child of past club President Paul Walter, who recognized the potential of directly asking members to support club projects once every year.  The “one and done” aspect of RIM and its negligible expenses make it a very efficient and cost-effective way of raising funds.

What should I contribute?

  • There are three levels of giving—for individual and corporate donors—that are aligned with the Rotary wheel logo: Key ($4000, corporate; $2,000 individual), Spoke ($2000 corporate, $1000 individual), and Cog ($1000 corporate, $500 individual).  Contributions of any amount, however, are welcome!

What will I receive in return? 

  • In addition to the satisfaction of knowing that a gift helps sustain our club’s many programs, donors will receive benefits that vary by giving level.  See list on reverse side.

Special Benefit to RIM donors: 

  • RIM donors will receive discounted tickets @ $30 to Night at the Races. Tickets purchased outside of RIM will cost $35.

What portion of my gift is tax-deductible? 

  • The amount of your donation that is tax-deductible appears on the chart on the next page.  If you don’t choose to receive benefits, your entire donation will be tax-deductible.  You will receive an acknowledgment of your tax-deductible donation.

How can I donate? 

  • Select the level of giving with which you are most comfortable or make a tax-deductible contribution of any amount.   Then complete the Rotary in Motion commitment form, indicating how and when you would like to pay and whether you wish to receive benefits, and submit it to Linda Neff.

Why should I donate?

  • Who cares more about our charitable projects than we Rotary members do?  Although we support many projects with our time, this is an easy, one-time annual way to support our projects with our treasure.   And giving feels good! Everyone who contributes will be recognized in our weekly Soundings, unless you prefer to remain anonymous.
