Rotary Clubs – What Is A Paul Harris Fellow you ask?

A Paul Harris Fellow is awarded to persons who, or for whom, a total of $1,000 has been donated to The Rotary (International) Foundation, whether in a lump sum or in increments over several years. This year is The Rotary Foundation’s 100th year. What began as an idea by Past RI President Arch C. Klumph to build an endowment with the purpose of “doing good in the world” in 1917 has grown to a Foundation that has $1 billion in assets and an impressive record of improving millions of lives. Today’s mission of The Rotary Foundation is to support the efforts of Rotary International in the fulfillment of the Object of Rotary, Rotary’s mission, and the achievement of world understanding and peace through local, national, and international humanitarian, educational, and cultural programs. It is one of the greatest foundations in the world. The giving expectation for every Rotarian is to give $100 per year to the foundation.  

There is no such thing as a Paul Harris Fellowship, and it is not an award; it is simply recognition.
