Foundation Minute for Week of June 18th

What is a Paul Harris Fellow?  First of all, Paul Harris was the founder of Rotary and in 1957, under the direction of Arch Klumph, President of Rotary in 1916-17, the Paul Harris Fellow was established.  The recognition is given to individuals who contribute financially, or have contributions made in their name, of $1000 to the Annual Fund, Polioplus, or an approved foundation grant.  Recognition consists of a certificate and a pin.

 

Paul Harris Fellows can also be given on behalf of someone through Foundation Recognition points or through a combination of points and outright donations.  Points are given for every dollar contribution to the Foundation. Since the creation of the Paul Harris Fellow over 1.6 million people have become Paul Harris Fellows.  

 

Join your fellow Rotarians in financially supporting The Rotary Foundation by becoming a Paul Harris Fellow.  Thank you.
