Make Foundation giving a club tradition

I t takes the financial contributions of Rotary club members for The Rotary Foundation to fulfill its mission: to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

How do some Rotary clubs maintain their high rates of Foundation support? One key is to establish a tradition of member giving – and capitalize on it when the opportunity arises.

The Rotary Club of Alexandria, La., USA, presented 61 members with Paul Harris Fellow recognition in June, taking advantage of a $100,000 donation to the Foundation from honorary member Norman Martin. Martin, who was already a Paul Harris Fellow, accumulated 100,000 recognition points from his contribution, which supported Rotary’s US$200 Million Challenge.
