New Initiatives

The Paul Harris Society (PHS) has recently been adopted by the Board of Trustees as an official recognition program that recognizes individuals who make annual contributions of US$1,000 or more to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus Fund and/or approved Foundation grants. The members of the Society will be recognized by a PHS certificate and pin. Sustaining the program is critically important for helping district grow a loyal base of Foundation supporters. Currently less than three percent of Foundation supporters give at the Paul Harris Society level. Yet this small but committed group represents more than 35 percent of all Annual Fund contributions. To widen the scope of this distinguished Society, Rotary Volunteer position has been created who will work as Paul Harris Society coordinator at District level.
