Recognition Points for Giving
Foundation recognition points are awarded to donors who contribute to The Rotary Foundation through the Annual Programs Fund or Polio Plus, or as a sponsor portion to a Foundation grant. Donors receive one recognition point for every US dollar contributed to these funds. Contributions to the Permanent Fund are not eligible.

Donors can extend Foundation Recognition points to others to help them become or to name them as a Paul Harris Fellow or Multiple Paul Harris Fellow. Foundation recognition points belong to the original donor until the donor's death, or until the donor uses the points. Click here to view the Recognition and Transfer Request form.
