The Rotary Foundation is offering double Foundation recognition points for all recurring contributions (through Rotary Direct) to the Annual Programs Fund between 1 April and 1 July 2012. Rotary Direct (formerly known as TRF-Direct) is The Rotary Foundation’s recurring giving program. There, you can select an amount, frequency (monthly, quarterly or annually), and contribution method (credit card or bank draft) to donate to our Foundation painlessly. I encourage you to set up recurring gifts to the Annual Fund (Share) and/or PolioPlus, as the other options (giving to the 6 area of focus) do not benefit our District.

What are the promotion details?


View the Join Rotary Direct and earn double recognition web announcement and Rotary Direct Information Guide for additional information.

Double recognition points will be automatically given to Rotarians and friends of Rotary who are enrolled in Rotary’s recurring giving program, Rotary Direct, and make one or more scheduled (monthly, quarterly or annual) contributions between 1 April and 1 July 2012.

Unlike past promotions for online giving, this special opportunity is available to recurring (monthly, quarterly, annual) contributions only, and is not available for one-time contributions. All recurring transactions that take place between 1 April and 1 July 2012 will generate double Foundation recognition points, but will not result in double recognition amount for the individual donor. Donors can extend their available Foundation recognition points to others to name them as a Paul Harris Fellow or Multiple Paul Harris Fellow. A donor’s personal recognition amount which is used to calculate their own Paul Harris Fellow status will not be subject to doubling.
