Paul Harris Fellow recognition was created in memory of Paul Harris, the founder of Rotary as a way to show appreciation for contributions to the Foundation's charitable and educational program. A Paul Harris Fellow is an individual who contributes $1,000 or in whose name that amount is contributed. Every Paul Harris Fellow receives a pin, medallion and a certificate when he or she becomes a Fellow. This identifies the Paul Harris Fellow as an advocate of the Foundation's goals of world peace and international understanding. It has been a practice of many clubs to award Paul Harris Fellowship to select members in appreciation of his or her service to the club. A sustaining member is an individual who contributes or in whose name is contributed a minimum of $100 with the commitment to contribute $1,000 within a ten-year period.
