The TRF Future Vision Plan

Pilot District Leadership Structure

As part of the Future Vision pilot, participating districts will be asked to restructure their district Rotary Foundation committee (DRFC). This committee, which serves as the liaison between The Rotary Foundation and Rotarians, assists in educating, motivating, and inspiring Rotarians to participate in Foundation activities in the district.


The committee will consist of the DRFC chair (PDF) and the chairs for the three subcommittees:

The Foundation simplified the subcommittees to reflect district activities needed for the Future Vision Plan.

The new structure gives districts more flexibility to add other subcommittees as necessary, rather than requiring a separate subcommittee for each area. For previous projects that will continue into the pilot, districts may appoint separate subcommittees to ensure that scholarships, Group Study Exchange teams, and humanitarian grants are completed and closed. Other district committees have been given Foundation responsibilities according to their expertise, such as the finance and membership development committees.

DRFC chair

To provide continuity for district Foundation projects and the management of the District Designated Fund, the district governor appoints the DRFC chair to a three-year term (from July 2010 through June 2013).

In some cases, clubs in the district may not yet have nominated the governor for the third year. If the district wishes, the current chair can be reappointed for an additional three-year term as long as the chair agrees to hold that position for the duration of the pilot. The district governor should make the appointment by 1 August 2009 so that DRFC chairs can receive registration materials for the Future Vision Pilot Training in San Diego, California, USA.
