Paul Harris Fellow
Paul Harris Fellow recognition was created in memory of Paul Harris, the founder of Rotary, as a way to show appreciation for contributions to the Foundation's charitable and educational programs.
Any Rotarian who contributes -- or in whose name is contributed -- a gift of $1,000 or more to Rotary International's Annual Programs Fund may become a Paul Harris Fellow.
Each new Paul Harris Fellow receives a commemorative certificate and a Paul Harris Fellow pin. Donors are eligible for Paul Harris Fellow recognition when their cumulative giving reaches $1,000.
For each additional gift totaling $1,000 or more, a Paul Harris Fellow:
- Becomes recognized as a Multiple Paul Harris Fellow
- May also choose to honor someone else as a Paul Harris Fellow by using their Foundation Recognition Points
- Is eligible to receive a Multiple Paul Harris Fellow pin with additional stones.
This identifies the Paul Harris Fellow as an advocate of the Rotary Foundation's goals of world peace and international understanding.
As is the practice in many clubs, the Rotary Club of Green Valley annually awards a Paul Harris Fellowship to the member selected as our Rotarian of the Year for their service to the club.
A sustaining member is an individual who contributes, or in whose name is contributed, a minimum of $100 per year, with the commitment to contribute $1,000 within a ten-year period.
An individual may become a Benefactor by making the Permanent Fund a beneficiary in their estate plans or by donating $1,000 or more to the fund outright.
Couples or individuals who have made commitments of $10,000 or more in their estate plans, such as in a will, living trust, or through whole or universal life insurance, can become Bequest Society members.
