District 6250 - Paul Harris Society


“The mission of the Rotary Foundation, of Rotary International is to
enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through the

support of education, the improvement of health and the alleviation of poverty.”

The Paul Harris Society recognizes Rotarians and friends of The Rotary Foundation who personally contribute US $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus or an approved Foundation grant each year.  Paul Harris Society members bring positive change to communities around the world. In any given year, less than 3 percent of Rotary Foundation donors contribute at the Paul Harris Society level or above, yet their contributions represent approximately 35 percent of all annual giving. As Rotary Foundation grants and activities are largely funded by Annual Fund contributions, Paul Harris Society members help determine how many individuals, families and communities Rotary can impact each year. 


Joining the Paul Harris Society

Rotarians and friends of Rotary can join the Paul Harris Society through several options:

  • Contribute online at www.rotary.org/contribute.  Contributions can be made securely online, in multiple currencies while preserving local tax benefits in many cases.  Consider automating your Paul Harris Society gifts through Rotary’s recurring giving program, Rotary Direct.  Monthly gifts of US $85 or quarterly contributions of $250 automatically make an individual a member of the Paul Harris Society.
  • Complete and send in the PHS enrollment and contribution form found by clicking here.
  • Notify your District Rotary Foundation Chair, Paul Harris Society coordinator or other district leader of your interest in joining the Paul Harris Society.
  • Receive your wearable PHS recognition pin by district leadership who will be able to order the insignias from The Rotary Foundation. 


Continuing Membership in the Paul Harris Society

Each year you will be asked to re-commit yourself to the Paul Harris Society.  If your circumstances have changed and you can no longer participate, you may opt out.  You can always re-commit yourself by completing the Paul Harris Society application form and contributing your $1000 by the end of the fiscal year on June 30th.
