SUBJECT: Double recognition for online contributions to the Annual Programs Fund
In honor of Rotary’s birthday, on 23 February 2011 Chairman Stenhammar has approved The Rotary Foundation offering double Paul Harris Fellow (PHF) recognition credit for online contributions of US$100 or more to the Annual Programs Fund.
The opportunity will be open to all Rotarian s worldwide for the day of 23 February 2011. There is no specific time zone associated with this promotion, so Rotarian s around the world can contribute whenever it is 23 February in their time zone. To be eligible for the double recognition credit, Rotarian s must be registered in Rotary’s secure Member Access section ofwww.rotary.org. As registration on Member Access can take up to 24 hours, it is important for Rotarian s to register in advance if they wish to participate in this promotion.
While the success of the 18-24 October 2010 online promotion for PolioPlus is the inspiration for this effort, there will be some slight differences for the 23 February promotion. Double PHF recognition credit will be provided to all online contributions of US$100 or more to APF-SHARE. Resulting Foundation Recognition Points (FRP), however, will not be subject to doubling.
The primary sources of communication regarding this promotion will be www.rotary.org and e-mail to club and district officers. A Frequently Asked Questions document will accompany a web announcement, scheduled for 15 February. Questions may be directed to Foundation staff at the Rotary International Office serving your region or to Rotary’s Contact Center,firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone, 866.976.8279.
