As you work on your 2015 Holiday gift list and charitable donations, please note the important year end deadlines that can be found by clicking READ MORE below.
Credit Cards:   
  • Via – must be authorized by midnight on Thursday, 31 December 2015.

  • Credit card contributions should not be sent to Rotary’s Lockbox Addresses below; rather they should be done online at to ensure timely recording or fax them to 847-328-5260.
Note: For security purposes, please do not send credit card contributions electronically, rather fax them to 847-328-5260.  You can also make contributions over the phone by calling 866-976-8279 during regular business hours.
Mail (least preferred):
Sending credit card information by mail is less secure and slower than contributing on-line.
Note: Contributions mailed at the end of December 2015 intended as early gifts for January 2016 will be treated as December 2015 gifts. It is best to begin mailing January 2016 gifts in the month of January. 
Both the postmark on the envelope and the date written on the check must be no later than Thursday, 31 December 2015 and received by Friday, 8 January 2016
