International Hospitality Foundation
Chair: Donna Schwab
The International Hospitality Foundation at LSU provides foreign students attending LSU with opportunities to get to know local residents, who are able to provide a welcome to these students. Sunrise Rotarians assist at a welcome dinner at the beginning of the fall semester and adopt foreign students to give them a local person to help them feel at home in Baton Rouge.
International Grants Project
Co-Chairs: Barbara Parsons and Charlie Schutte
Local Rotary Clubs are encouraged to partner with Rotary Clubs in other countries to bring about necessary changes that will benefit the people in the country where the other Rotary Club is located. Around the world, Rotary Clubs are seeking help through Rotary International for way to improve their native land or health. Members of this committee work with the Sunrise Rotary Board of Directors to determine what project Sunrise Rotary is interested in assisting and then write the necessary grants to accomplish the desired project.
