The presentation of Paul Harris Fellow (PHF) Recognition is The Rotary Foundations’ way of expressing its appreciation for a substantial contribution to its humanitarian and educational programs. It is named for our founder, Paul Harris, a Chicago Lawyer who began Rotary International with three business associates in 1905.
To recognize those Rotarians who contribute $1,000 or more to the Annual Programs Fund, Polio Plus or Humanitarian Grant programs that sustain and advance The Rotary Foundation’s humanitarian, educational and cultural programs.
A pin and medallion were designed as a means to express appreciation to these generous donors. Wilmington Central Rotarians are recognized at a Rotary meeting and pining ceremony.
