Michael Dunlap, Major Gifts Officer for The Rotary Foundation, is our speaker today. Upon joining his Rotary Club in 1985, Michael was made treasurer and told that his first task was to raise $5,200 for Rotary’s fight against polio. Rotarians are wonderful supporters of polio eradication and he raised $15,000. As the next 10 years passed, he managed his CPA firm and moved through his club’s chairs finally becoming club president. Attending PETS, a speaker told of performing surgeries on polio victims, allowing crawlers to walk. Taking a big gulp of Rotary’s Kool-Aid, Michael became a Rotarian for life. Pondering how he might make a meaningful contribution to Rotary’s work, Michael found that incorporating charitable gifting techniques into clients’ estate, income and financial planning brought in Arch Klumph Society members, half of whom had never attended a Rotary meeting. In 2004, Michael and his Rotarian wife, Nancy, became AKS members. Working within District 5340, Michael served as District Treasurer, Audit Committee member, Foundation Mentor, Co-Foundation Chair, and Assistant Governor. In 2010 he sold his CPA firm and became a staff member with The Rotary Foundation serving as the Zone’s Major Gift Officer. Michael travels throughout our thirteen Districts, meeting with wonderful people and helping structure gifts that enable Rotary to do good in the world.
