Annual Program Fund Contributions

The cornerstone for funding of Rotary Foundation Programs:
  • Contributions by Clubs and individuals count towards Paul Harris Fellow Recognition, Multiple Paul Harris Fellow Recognition or Major Donor Recognition as do Every Rotarian Every Year (EREY) – Centurions and Paul Harris Society membership. Clubs are able to significantly leverage their capacity for humanitarian work through funds from The Rotary Foundation and the highest possible Club contributions to The Rotary Foundation are encouraged.
  • Note that Contributions to Grants, the Permanent Fund, PolioPlus or other restricted funds do not count towards the Annual Program Fund for a Club.
Chair: PDG Dennis Shore (Hawthorn)

Centurion Program

  • All Rotarians are encouraged to contribute an annual donation of A$100 or more to be recognised as a Centurion member (tax deductible if eligible). Rotarians may contribute any amount to the Every Rotarian Every Year (EREY) program, which is also tax deductible (if eligible).
Chair: Gabe Hau (E-Club of Melbourne)
