Questions and Answers
  • With each $1,000 gift you may NAME a new Paul Harris Fellow. 
  • This is unrestricted giving.  All Paul Harris Society gifts are designated for the Annual Programs Fund.  100% of APF dollars go to fund Foundation programs. In three years The Rotary Foundation will return 50% of the District’s Annual Giving to the District as District Designated Funds (DDF).

Questions and Answers
  • All previouspersonal gifts to the Foundation are counted toward Major Donor recognition; however, your Paul Harris Society membership begins upon your contribution in the current Rotary year 2006-2007.
  • A personal gift already made to the 2006-2007 Annual Programs Fund counts toward your Paul Harris Society pledge.  Example:  If you've already made a $200 gift to the APF this Rotary year you can become a Paul Harris Society member with the gift of an additional $800.
