The Paul Harris Society of District 5340
Founded in 1999 in District 5340 by PDG Wayne Cusick, the Paul Harris Society is now being used as a recognition and fundraising program in over 200 districts. Worldwide, the PHS membership approaches 5,000 donors. In September 2008, District 5340 celebrated reaching the 200 member milestone.
The Paul Harris Society is a level of recognition for those donors who chose to give $1,000 or more each Rotary fiscal year to the Rotary Foundation's Annual and/or Restricted Giving in support of our Foundation programs worldwide.
This voluntary program was officially adopted by the RI Board of Trustees effective July 1, 2006 as a district-administered program to recognize our larger donors in support of our Foundation programs.
With the ever-increasing involvement of our clubs in Foundation Programs, the need was apparent to increase our contributions to The Rotary Foundation. The Rotary Foundation through the SHARE Program and World Fund provide major fuel to our participation in Foundation Programs such as Matching Grants, Group Study Exchange, Rotary Volunteers, Village Banks, Ambassadorial Scholarships, Grants For University Teachers, and District Simplified Grants.
The resources below are available to help other Districts implement a Paul Harris Society Program. They can be slightly modified to adapt to each District.
