Foundation points are awarded to donors who contribute to The Rotary Foundation through the Annual Program Fund or PolioPlus.  Donors are recognized by being named “Paul Harris Fellows” or “Multiple Paul Harris Fellows” at increments of 1,000 Foundation points.  In addition, a donor receives one Foundation “recognition” point for every U.S. dollar contributed.  These recognition points are available for the Rotarian to gift to a family member, another Rotarian, or non Rotarian.  These gift of recognition points must be a minimum of 100 points
The Rotary Club of Ankeny currently has 30 members with more than 1,000 Foundations recognition points and many additional members with several hundred points.  Several of these members have indicated an interest in making a gift of all or a portion of their points.  If you would like to know how many points you have and/or would like to make a gift of some of your recognition points to another person, contact Steve SchraderBachar.
