    For over 100 years, the Rotary Foundation has been supporting Rotarians’ work to create sustainable solutions to our world’s most pressing needs.

    The Paul Harris Society (PHS) is a formal recognition program to honor generous Rotarians who elect to contribute $1,000 or more annually to The Rotary Foundation. Today, this vibrant global community of donors is paving the way to a better world.

    Rotarians join the Paul Harris Society for many reasons. Past District Governor James Springer (Rotary Club of Columbia Breakfast, Tennessee) believes the Paul Harris Society “helps make Service Above Self a way of life.” For Paul Harris Society Coordinator Bill Dees (Rotary club of Hannibal, Illinois) “It is about taking action - doing something now that will make a difference in someone’s life.”

    Since Rotary formally adopted the Paul Harris Society in 2013, Paul Harris Society members have donated $58.8 million to The Rotary Foundation. By joining this network of dedicated, action-minded Rotarians, you, too, can help to create meaningful change.  

    Enroll here, or talk to Jack Zalaha, our Planned Giving Officer, or any member of the Foundation Committee.  Membership begins as soon as you make the commitment.  Recognition consists of a chevron-style pin worn on one's lapel.
You can be certain that your donation will be used wisely. See the Foundation’s Charity Navigator rating, here. The Rotary Foundation has a top-notch reputation for careful and judicious stewardship of our funds.
