The Every Rotarian Every Year effort is aimed at encouraging Rotarians worldwide to participate fully in the mission of Rotary through their ideal of service and their generosity. Every amount contributed to The Rotary Foundation is spent for the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty. If you give $100 per year through EREY, you automatically become a Rotary Foundation “Sustaining Member”.
Your Foundation contributions accumulate Every Year. After you have recorded $1,000 in donations, you can receive a Paul Harris Fellowrecognition, which can be used for the donor or for any other person or even for a buisiness or a cause. Click here for more about the various forms of recognition available, including the Paul Harris Fellow recognition.
The purpose of the Every Rotarian Every Year Initiative is twofold: to encourage Every Rotarian to contribute at least $100 to The Rotary Foundation’s Annual Program Fund, Every Year, and to encourage Every Rotarian to participate in a Rotary Foundation humanitarian or educational project that truly makes a difference in the world.
