  • To encourage all clubs to contribute to the Annual Fund (a suggested figure is $NZ125/ member but what the club can afford)
  • To encourage all clubs to give to Polio (a suggested figure is $NZ50/ member but what the club can afford)
  • To encourage every Rotarian to personally give NZ$100 each year to become a Centurion Member of The Rotary Foundation.
  • To encourage and assist Rotarians and their families to become Paul Harris Fellows and Paul Harris Society members.
  • To share knowledge of The Rotary Foundation with Rotarians of the district and continue to promote Rotary Foundation through regular Club visits, presentations and training
  • To seek a Major Donor or a new Member of the Bequest Society.
  • To seek an additional Benefactor from each club in the district.

    • This is your CLUB'S contribution to making the world a better place
  • For Polio donations our district recommends that you budget $50 per member per year from fundraising.
    • This is your CLUB'S commitment to ridding the world from Polio. Remember every dollar you give gets matched 2:1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, so $1 = $3
  • Centurion Programme of at least $100 per person each year - equivalent to "Every Rotarian Every Year"
    • This is an INDIVIDUAL contribution by Rotarians or non-Rotarians.
