Take Your Rotary Foundation Donation Further With the District Match

Using Rotary Foundation Recognition Points generously donated by an anonymous donor, our district (District 5870) will match contributions of new cash made to the Annual Fund-SHARE during Rotary Year 2020-21 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-serve basis until November 30, 2020, or until the match pool is exhausted (whichever comes first).   

Here’s how it works:           

  • Before making an eligible contribution, please contact Past District Governor Rich Kaye via email at richkaye@hot.rr.com and let him know how much you intend to contribute.  
  • Then, send your contribution directly to the Rotary Foundation using the Rotary Foundation Contribution Form (123-EN) or online at    my.rotary.org/en/donate.  **IMPORTANT If you are going to donate on-line, be sure to sign in to My Rotary before doing so.**  
  • Once the contribution appears on your record, the District will submit the match.  

There are a few exceptions.  Please note that this program will not match:

  • Contributions from anyone whose current Recognition Amount is $8,501 or more at the time the contribution is made.      
  • 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, the district will only match the first $200 so that you achieve PHF+8.   
  • 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 the program. 
  • Foundation Recognition Point transfers.
