The Paul Harris Society is a district-administered recognition for those who elect to personally contribute US$1,000 or more each year to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus, or an approved Rotary Foundation Grant. Paul Harris Societies are active and growing in districts throughout the world, and they continue to be one of the most important strategies for sustaining and increasing financial support for our Foundation.
As of 30 June 2012, 483 districts reported 28,652 individuals contributing at the Paul Harris Society level. Although less than 3% of Rotary Foundation supporters are eligible members of the Paul Harris Society, their contributions represent roughly 35% of all Annual Fund contributions for the year.
