What is “Every Rotarian, Every Year” All About?

This initiative by the Board of Trustees of The Rotary Foundation encourages “every Rotarian, every year” to:

1. Participate in a Foundation program that is making a difference in the world 
2. Contribute to the Foundation’s Annual Fund at a sustainable amount 
 
The Rotary Foundation even has banners for clubs where every member contributes at least US$25 to the Annual Fund with a US$100 per capita during the Rotary year. Today, around 1/3 of Rotarians participate in this initiative. In 2020-21, The Rotary Foundation was able to award 1,957 global grants for large-scale sustainable projects due to the generosity of these Rotarians. Think about how much more Rotary could accomplish in the world if all of our 1.2 million worldwide members each gave at least US$25 to our Foundation’s Annual Fund. 
 
If you are a part of the “Every Rotarian, Every Year” initiative – we thank you for your support of The Rotary Foundation and its work.
What is a Paul Harris Society Member?

The Paul Harris Society recognizes Rotary members and friends of The Rotary Foundation who elect to contribute $1,000 or more each year to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus Fund, or approved global grants. The purpose of the Paul Harris Society is to honor and thank individuals for their generous, ongoing support of The Rotary Foundation.

Paul Harris Society contributions also count toward Sustaining Member (Annual Fund contributions only), Evert Rotarian Every Year (Annual Fund contributions only), Paul Harris Fellow, and Major Donor recognition. Recognition consists of a chevron style pin and a certificate provided by your District Paul Harris Society Coordinator.

Paul Harris Society members are listed in the Paul Harris Society Report.

What is a Major Donor and Arch Klumph Society Member?
Major Donor – The Rotary Foundation recognizes individuals or couples whose combined giving reaches US$10,000, regardless of the gift designation. This recognition level can be achieved only through personal contributions. Major Donors may elect to receive a crystal recognition piece and pin(s) commemorating the gift at each new recognition level. Since Rotary’s Major Donor recognition began there have been over 30,000 Major Donors.
 
Arch Klumph Society – Donors whose cumulative gifts total US$250,000 or more are recognized as Arch Klumph Society members. Recognition includes an induction ceremony and your picture and biography in the Arch Klumph Society interactive gallery at the Rotary International headquarters in Evanston, Illinois, USA. Members also receive invitations to society events, along with membership pins and crystals that commemorate their giving level. Since the society’s creation in 2004, there have been over 700 Arch Klumph Society members.
