Jim Lechko, Rotary District Foundation, Major Gifts & Paul Harris Society Chair received a warm welcome and introduction from Assistant Governor Kevin Wermer. "We welcome Jim to Medina Sunrise Rotary this morning to talk about the Paul Harris Society and why it is important to you and to the mission of Rotary International."

"The Paul Harris Society, named for the founder of Rotary, represents both a legacy of service and a commitment to sustainability for the work of Rotary in communities around the world," explained Lechko.  "Why should you support the Paul Harris Society?  Your annual pledge of $1,000, when combined with others from 1.2 million Rotarians serving in over 200 countries, creates a global impact to do good by promoting humanitarian programs in literacy, education, healthcare, women's rights, environmental awareness, and community development.  As a member of the Paul Harris Society, your annual donation contributes to building a better world of peace, freedom and understanding."


Donating to Rotary means clean water and sanitation. Health and hope in areas that were once ravaged by diseases like polio. Economic development and new opportunities. Your financial help makes all this happen, and more.


Give where the need is greatest

When you give to The Rotary Foundation, you fuel our service projects - projects that eradicate polio, promote peace, and improve developing communities.
