Paul Harris formed the world’s first service club, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on February 23, 1905. His intention was to recapture in a professional club the same friendly spirit he had felt in the small towns of his youth.

Today, Paul Harris Society contributions to The Rotary International Foundation support a wide range of humanitarian grants and educational programs that enable Rotarians to bring hope and promote international understanding throughout the world.

When a Rotarian makes a contribution to the Paul Harris Society, they receive a “Paul Harris” pin for each $1,000 donated.

Donations are used to provide grants for charitable community projects from individual clubs around the world.
