100% Paul Harris Fellow Club

University Hills (Denver) Rotary Club obtained the designation of “100 percent Paul Harris Fellow Club” on January 25, 2010. University Hills (Denver) was a Rotary club in which all dues-paying members were Paul Harris Fellows. The Paul Harris Fellow recognition is given in appreciation to anyone who contributes, outright or cumulatively-or in whose name is contributed-a gift of $1,000 or more to the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.


U- Hills attained the distinction of being a “100 percent Paul Harris Fellow Club again on October 9, 2013.

The recognition has only been afforded to 6.6% of the 34,000 Rotary Clubs worldwide; to only two other clubs of the 67 clubs in our District 5450 .
