Grants Program
Global Scholarships

The Paul Harris Society is named after the founder of Rotary International. The society recognizes friends of The Rotary Foundation who annually contribute US$1,000 or more to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus or other approved Foundation grant activities. Society contributions may count toward Rotary Foundation Sustaining Member, Paul Harris Fellow, Multiple Paul Harris Fellow, and Major Donor recognition.

Members of the Paul Harris Society receive a distinctive ribbon to be worn on their Paul Harris pin.

Our Foundation's humanitarian, educational and cultural programs are not sustainable unless we annually contribute the funds needed to continue their success. A contribution of $85 a month or $250 a quarter can make a world of difference for those in need. It's easy to contribute on a regular schedule using Rotary Direct
