Paul Harris Society

The Paul Harris Society recognizes Rotary members and friends of The Rotary Foundation who elect to contribute $1,000 or more each year to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus Fund, or approved global grants.

The purpose of the Paul Harris Society is to honor and thank individuals for their generous, ongoing support of The Rotary Foundation.

Rotary districts often honor new members of the Paul Harris Society by presenting them with a certificate and chevron at a district or club event.

I participate in the Paul Harris Society because I care. These contributions demonstrate our commitment to serve others.

If you are already contributing $1,000.00 or more to the Rotary Foundation and not a member of the Paul Harris Society, then fill out the Paul Harris Society Brochure and mail it, fax it or email it to address indicted on the form. If you are not sure if your are an active member of the Paul Harris Society, contact the PHS District Coordinator PDG César M. Caro by email.

If you are not a Paul Harris Society member then please consider joining today and help make a difference in the world. Be the Inspiration!
Due to your positive response to the Each One, Bring One initiative, I am so happy to see that the membership trends in Rotary are looking up. Let us not lose this momentum — keep inviting new members, and also work hard to retain every member we attract. I look forward to seeing you next month in Houston at the 2022 Rotary International Convention, which I assure you will be a great event.

Rotary Showcase Impact Tracker

Rotary Showcase is an online application that allows Rotarians and Rotaractors to share stories of their clubs’ successful projects with people around the world. In addition, project stories are a source for features in Rotary International blogs and newsletters.

The Showcase’s Impact Tracker shows the impact of each Rotary project in terms of volunteers and volunteer hours, cash contributions, and in-kind donations. It also shows the collective impact of all reported projects.

Success stories posted on Showcase can serve as an inspiration and a model for other Rotary and Rotaractor clubs. Check out this "Impact Tracker" by clicking here.

What Paul Harris Said

Image

"Rotary has a long way to go. One who thinks of the movement as a finished product is indeed short sighted; there is nothing in the past to justify such a view; those who have been long identified with it think of it as having made a beginning only; the grandeur of Rotary must be in the days to come".
