Recognition point changes and other Foundation updates
Starting 1 October, Rotary Foundation recognition points will be awarded for contributions to the Annual Programs Fund , PolioPlus, or the sponsor portion of a Foundation grant. One Foundation recognition point will be given for every U.S. dollar contributed to these funds, which can then be extended to others to help them become a Paul Harris Fellow. Donors will no longer need to be a Paul Harris Fellow themselves before Foundation recognition points are awarded.
Improved Foundation reports
Updated and streamlined reports will be available to club and district officers on Member Access by the end of September, including the following:
- Benefactor Report
- Club Recognition Summary Report
- Donor History Report
- Every Rotarian, Every Year Eligibility Report
- Monthly Contribution Report
Upcoming enhancements include forms for new Rotary Foundation Contributions, Recognition Transfer Requests, and additional contribution reports. In addition, donor recognition processing time and associated costs will decrease as the benefits of a new system are fully realized.
Experience these improvements by contributing online at www.rotary.org/contribute. With your important and generous financial support, The Rotary Foundation is fulfilling its promise of a polio-free world, helping children and families live healthier lives and creating a more peaceful future.
