To celebrate Rotary Foundation Month, District 5890 is offering to match our members contribution 1:1 with recognition transfer points. This will help give you credit towards your Paul Harris Fellow and beyond, up to PHF+8.  Sorry Major Donors, point transfer will not help you toward your next level of Major Donor. However your continued personal contribution will.


  • Minimum contribution of $250 and Maximum contribution of $500 qualifies for matching 1:1
  • Designation of contribution must be for Annual Fund (this is the fund that 50% comes back to District in 3 years)
  • All contributions must be mailed directly to The Rotary Foundation (14280 Collections Center Drive, Chicago, IL 60693-0142)
  • Contributions must be made between November 15 to December 15, 2023
  • If mailing contribution as a group within your Club, use The Rotary Foundation's Multiple Donor Form.
  • If mailing contribution as an individual donor, use The Rotary Foundation Contribution Form.
  • To obtain the matching, send copy of the above form to Barbara Franklin, via email at 


    Generous gifts to The Rotary Foundation help create lasting change in communities both close to home and around the world. Celebrate Rotary Foundation Month in November by engaging with current and prospective donors in your community and by making your own contribution to support our work. Here’s how:
    1. Support our Foundation on Giving Tuesday, 28 November. Make a gift to the Foundation, and share your support on social media. The top clubs in fundraising, participation, and online giving will be featured on My Rotary. Read about last year’s honorees.
    2. Share our impact. Take time during a club meeting to show members how the Foundation transforms gifts into service projects that advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace by fighting disease, improving the quality of education, protecting the environment, alleviating poverty, and doing even more. Invite a Foundation scholarship recipient or a community member who was involved in or benefited from a grant project to speak about the Foundation’s impact on their life.
    3. Thank our donors. The Foundation will be sending special thank-you messages to donors around the world in November. But your leadership offers a more personal connection and deep understanding of the impact their contributions make. Take a moment to write a thank-you note or recognize donors during a club meeting.
