Club Major Donor Recognition
The Rotary Club of Karrinyup has been recognised as a Club Major Donor Bronze for contributions of more than $US1000,000 over the years. The Club's Major Donor Program allows The Rotary Foundation to express its gratitude for a club's proud history of giving over many years or decades. Alongside personal giving, club giving is the lifeblood of the Foundation's goal of 'doing good in the world.'
Our history of Rotary Foundation support is commendable. Along with the support we provide to Australian Rotary Health - one of the largest independent funders of mental health research within Australia – it’s a proud history of giving we have and worthy of celebration. View certificate.
There are now two programs to recognise club support for The Rotary Foundation, the Club Annual Donor and the Club Major Donor recognitions. Both programs will offer five levels of recognition.
The Rotary Foundation has a range of programs to acknowledge the personal contributions of Rotarians and other individual donors. However, in Australia and New Zealand, about half the giving to the Foundation comes from our clubs, and until now, there hasn’t been a program to recognise clubs for their generosity.
From the end of the 2020-2021-year, District 9455 will join with other districts in Australia and New Zealand (i.e. Zone 8) with these two new programs.
The Club Annual Donor program will recognise club giving over the previous 12 months. To ensure it is open to clubs of all sizes, the program will work on a per-member basis.
Like the Major Donor program for individuals, the Club Major Donor program will be based on all-time giving and will be a way of thanking clubs for their sustained support for our Foundation over many years.
