It's that time again! 
For a limited time starting on Monday, August 1, 2022, District 5870 will do the following:
Using Rotary Foundation Recognition Points generously donated by an anonymous donor, we will match contributions of new cash made to the Annual Fund-SHARE during Rotary Year 2022-23 on a 1-to-1 basis in amounts of $250 to $500 for any active Rotarian in District 5870 who is not yet a Paul Harris Fellow +8. 
Please note
  • These matches are limited to one per donor and will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis from 12:01 a.m. Monday, August 1, 2022 until 11:59 p.m. on Monday, October 31, 2022
  • Match requests received prior to August 1, 2022 or after October 31, 2022 will not be accepted.
Last year, 204 Rotarians from 39 clubs contributed in excess of $79,000 and we are looking forward to another great year.
Here’s how it works:          
1.  Before making an eligible contribution, please contact me via email at and let us know how much you intend to contribute. 
2.  Send your contribution directly to TRF using either The Rotary Foundation Contribution Form (123-en) or going on-line at  A copy of the Foundation Contribution Form is attached to this email.
Please note:  If you are going to donate on-line, be sure to sign into My Rotary before doing so.  Once the contribution appears on your record, we will submit the match. 
There are a few exceptions.  Please note that this program will not match:
      1.  Contributions from anyone whose current Recognition Amount is $8,501 or more at the time the contribution is made.
      2.  More than it actually takes to achieve PHF+8 status.  For instance, if you have already contributed $8,500 to date, and now elect to contribute $300 more, we will only match the first $200 so that you achieve PHF+8. 
      4.  Contributions made to any fund other than the Annual Fund-Share (i.e. PolioPlus, Disaster Response, Endowment Fund, Rotary Peace Centers, and Global Grants).  While these contributions are both appreciated and important, they fall outside the parameters of this program. 
      4.  Foundation Recognition Point transfers.
If applicable, please provide me with the mailing address to which you want your recognition pin mailed.
Yours in Rotary Service,
