Foundation Recognition Points

 
What are Foundation Recognition Points and how are they accumulated?
 
Foundation Recognition Points are awarded to donors who contribute to The Rotary Foundation through the Annual Fund, or PolioPlus, or as a sponsor portion to a Foundation grant.  Donors receive one Foundation Recognition Point for every U.S. dollar contributed to these funds. Contributions to the Endowment Fund are not eligible.
 
Donors can transfer 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 (the surviving spouse of a Major Donor may also use the points).
 
How do you transfer Foundation Recognition Points?
 
A minimum of 100 Foundation Recognition Points must be transferred at a time, and an authorizing signature is required when completing the Recognition and Transfer Request.
  • Individual donors are the only ones authorized to transfer Foundation Recognition Points from their individual account.
  • Club presidents are the only ones authorized to transfer Foundation Recognition Points from the club’s account.
  • District governors are the only ones authorized to transfer Foundation Recognition Points from the district account.
Foundation recognition points may not be transferred from individuals to a club or district.
