Donating to the Foundation can be done in one of three ways:
  1. Through your club. Please advise your club secretary that you wish the funds that you are giving be sent to The Rotary Foundation Canada and what you wish the funds to be earmarked towards (examples are The Annual Fund SHARE Program [which supports the Foundation Grants], Polio Plus or special campaigns).
  2. By mail. Please send your donation to:
 The Rotary Foundation (Canada)
 c/o 911600
 PO Box 4090 STN A,
 Toronto, ON M5W 0E9
Once again please indicate what you wish the funds to be earmarked towards (examples are The Annual Fund [which supports the Foundation Grants], Polio Plus or special campaigns).

Foundation Recognition
 
There are 9 ways in which individual donors to the Foundation and contributing clubs are recognized by The Rotary Foundation.
  1. Sustaining Member (This is a Rotarian who donates at least $100US to the Foundation in a Rotary year).
  2. Sustaining Club (This is a Club which donates at least $100US per member to the Foundation in a Rotary year) (Example a 20 member club would donate at least $2,000US).
  3. Sustaining Member Club (This is a club where all members make a personal donation to the Rotary Foundation and the total of all the Rotarian donations equals at least $100US times the number of members in the club).
  4. Paul Harris Fellowship (When a Rotarian or a Club has donated $1,000US to the Foundation the Rotarian or Club may elect to nominate an individual as a Paul Harris Fellow. Self-nomination by the Rotarian is completely acceptable. Cumulative donations by a Rotarian or a Club over multiple years count towards Paul Harris Fellowship recognition.)
  5. Paul Harris Society (When a Rotarian pledges to donate $1,000US per year to the Foundation that Rotarian becomes a member of the Paul Harris Society.)
  6. Major Donor (Once a Rotarian has donated a total of $10,000US cumulative over time, that Rotarian becomes a Major Donor Level 1. There are subsequent levels for further donations in varying increments.)
  7. Arch Klumph Society (A Rotarian who donates $250,000US in a one-time donation of cash or equivalent become a member of the Arch Klumph Society.)
  8. Benefactor (Individuals who include The Rotary Foundation for any amount in their estate plans are recognized as Rotary Foundation Benefactors.)
