PAUL HARRIS FELLOW AWARDS and SUSTAINING MEMBERS

Paul Harris Fellow (PHF) Awards--named for the founder of RI--are presented periodically to members and non-members of our club. There two kinds of awards:

Honorary Paul Harris Fellow Awards:
These awards are granted by the Annapolis Rotary Club to recognize outstanding service to the Club and/or community. The Club pays the $1,000 fee and the honorees are selected by the Paul Harris Fellow Recognition Committee and the club Board of Directors.

Paul Harris Fellow Awards:
The Rotary International Foundation gives these awards to individuals selected by Rotarians who donate $1,000 to the RI Foundation. Our Club matches, dollar for dollar, the first $500 a member contributes to the RI Foundation. Thus, a $500 contribution to the RI Foundation qualifies a member to designate a PHF.

RI Foundation Sustaining Members:
A significant number of Annapolis Rotarians (as of May 2005 there were 75) have pledged at least $100 a year to support the humanitarian works of Rotary International through the RI Foundation Sustaining Member program. As with the contributions for the PHF Awards, our Club matches the first $500 donated by a member to the RI Foundation. The Directors of the Rotary International Foundation ask each Rotarian to contribute at least $100 a year to the RI Foundation.

EVERY ROTARIAN, EVERY YEAR--$100
