The Paul Harris Society, named for Rotary’s founder, is made up of dedicated supporters who annually contribute $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus Fund, or an approved Rotary Foundation Grant. 

Paul Harris Society gifts have helped provide vocational training for teachers establishing an early childhood education center in South Africa; water filters, toilets, and hygiene training to prevent fluorosis, diarrhea, and other diseases in Ecuador (a project we supported as a Club); a scholarship for a medical professional in Italy to research treatments that minimize mortality rates among premature babies; peace-building seminars for 200 teachers and 1,300 students in Uganda; and treated mosquito nets and medical services that prevent malaria in Mali, among many, many others. 

The Rotary Foundation has a top-notch reputation for careful and judicious stewardship of our funds. See the Foundation’s Charity Navigator rating, here.
