STAR Club awards
The Rotary Foundation's fundraising goal is for every Rotarian to donate $100 every year.
To support this goal, District 6780 launched the STAR CLUB Designation Program during Rotary's Centennial year, 2004-2005. The program has been a great success. Rotarians are proud to belong to a STAR CLUB and to help make District 6780 become the brightest constellation in the world of Rotary.
Our District recognizes as a STAR CLUB every club whose annual contribution level reaches an average of $100 per member.
In order for a club to receive STAR CLUB designation and be recognized at the District Conference the club MUST turn in its annual contributions by March 31st each year. This will allow enough time to determine which clubs will be recognized at the annual District Conference.
Clubs that meet the goal by June 30th will be lauded by the District Governor during the annual visit to the club. Also, there will be a special list of the STAR CLUBS displayed on the District's web site and listed in the annual District Directory.
Designation as a STAR CLUB adds prestige to each and every club that achieves this annual level of support for our Rotary Foundation.
Every year each Rotary Club can add more stars. Clubs that continue to show full support for the Rotary Foundation year after year will be classified as a 2 STAR CLUB, 3 STAR CLUB, 4 STAR CLUB, 5 STAR CLUB, to 10 SUPER STAR CLUB, etc.
Rotary District 6780's goal is to have every club recognized as a STAR CLUB every year.
There is not a better way for all of us to affirm our belief in the incredible programs and projects made possible by The Rotary Foundation. Motivate your Rotary club to become a STAR CLUB!

HISTORY OF STAR CLUBS IN DISTRICT 6780:
