FIGHTING FOOD INSECURITY IN OUR DISTRICT

Please support our initiative to raise funds for fighting food insecurity in District 6000.   These funds will focus on the need to provide food and nutrition to the thousands of Iowans in the District who have been blindsided by the Covid-19 pandemic.  Food Bank network in Iowa, supplies every food pantry in District 6000. The 3 food banks serving District 6000 territory have a coordinated formula which allows contributions to be distributed equitably throughout the Food Banks based in Des Moines, Cedar Rapids area, and Davenport. 
 
We are hoping for generous support from our 65 clubs and individually from our 3500+ members in District 6000. Together we can have a real impact and provide assistance in each of our communities.
 
We encourage you to make your contribution to the District 6000 Humanitarian and Educational Foundation ( D6000 HEF) with a notation in the memo line “Food Bank project” and mail it to District Governor Erna Morain’s home address.  She will tally donations and thank donors.  Thanks so much to all of you who have already contributed!

FILE REQUIRED ANNUAL INFORMATION RETURN WITH IRS BY NOV. 15

Whether your club is a subordinate under Rotary International’s 501(c)(4) group exemption or is independently tax-exempt, the IRS requires that all Rotary clubs in the U.S. file an annual information return. For those clubs whose tax year follows the Rotary year, the deadline to file is 15 November. The form a club must file is dependent upon its gross receipts for the year. For more information, please see Frequently asked questions about annual reporting requirements for exempt organizations at www.irs.gov.
 
It is important that your club comply with IRS requirements. Please note that Section 6033(j) of the Internal Revenue Code automatically revokes the exemption of any organization that fails to satisfy its filing requirement for three consecutive years.
 
Frequently Asked Questions will answer many of the general questions you may have about Rotary clubs and the IRS. Please direct specific questions regarding your club’s tax-exempt status or reporting requirements to local counsel, your tax adviser, or the IRS at 877-829-5500.
