Paul Harris Membership
THE PAUL HARRIS SOCIETY IS A (DISTRICT-ADMINISTERED) NEW LEVEL OF RECOGNITION FOR THOSE WHO ELECT TO GIVE US$1,000 OR MORE EACH YEAR TO THE ROTARY FOUNDATION’S ANNUAL PROGRAMS FUND (APF)*. THROUGH CONTRIBUTIONS TO APF, 50% OF THESE FUNDS ARE RETURNED TO THE DISTRICT IN THREE YEARS AS DISTRICT DESIGNATED FUNDS. * IN SOME INSTANCES, RESTRICTED GIVING IS PERMITTED.
1.) Since contributions to The Permanent Fund do not qualify towards Paul Harris Fellow Recognition, contributions to the Permanent Fund will not qualify for membership in the PHS.
2.) Only new, outright contributions count towards membership. The transfer of Foundation Recognition Points do not count.
3.) Each donor must give a minimum of $1,000 annually to qualify. A member and spouse must give a minimum of $1,000 each to both qualify as members of the PHS.
4.) Contributions to club foundations do not qualify towards membership in the PHS.
5.) Membership in the PHS will be determined once your contribution posts at The Rotary Foundation and you alert the person in charge in your district the payment has posted.
6.) Pledges do not count towards membership in the PHS. Enrollment in TRF-DIRECT will qualify toward membership.
