A Rotary Foundation Sustaining Member (formerly called a Paul Harris Sustaining Member) is a person who contributes $100 or more per year to the Foundation’s Annual Programs Fund. RAW members are encouraged to donate $25 a quarter to sustain our status as a Paul Harris Club so we can apply for matching grant funds to enhance our projects. This donation is included with your quarterly dues.
Without sustained support of the Annual Programs Fund, the programs of The Rotary Foundation cannot happen. With contributions of $100 from every member every year, Rotary can nearly double its efforts to help needy people the world over, supporting the continued growth of programs.
All gifts given through the Sustaining Member program go to the Annual Programs Fund and are eligible for and count cumulatively toward the Foundation’s various recognition programs, including recognition as a Paul Harris Fellow after $1,000 has been contributed.
Each and every Sustaining Member gift to The Rotary Foundation is a gift of hope to those less fortunate. Every gift truly makes a difference in someone’s life
