International Services: Chava Gonzalez

Chava was originally a member of the Rotary Club of West El Paso from 1976 to 1980, and resigned due to business commitments. In 1992 he joined the Juarez Chamizal Rotary Club where he served as treasurer for two years, secretary for one year, and club President for one year. He was also Director, International Service from 1997 to 2004, where he was instrumental in obtaining 10 Matching Grants. Chava transferred his membership to the Rotary Club of West El Paso in February 2004, and has served as Director, International Services since that time. He has focused his efforts on the ‘Matching Grant’ program, and has successfully obtained six matching grants, one simplified grant, and one 3H. He plans to continue working on the ‘Matching Grant’ program for the foreseeable future, because “when it comes to helping the less fortunate, there is no better mechanism.” Chava always closes his correspondence with the quote “God Bless Our Troops.”
