Paul Harris

Recognising Excellence

PHF

What is a Paul Harris Fellow?

The presentation of Paul Harris Fellow recognition is The Rotary Foundation’s way of expressing its appreciation for a substantial contribution to its humanitarian and educational programs. It is named for our founder, Paul Harris, a Chicago lawyer who started Rotary International with three business associates in 1905.

Rotarians often designate a Paul Harris Fellow as a tribute to a person whose life demonstrates a shared purpose with the objectives of the Rotary Foundation.

Paul Harris said:

    “He who tries to find the good in others will be rewarded, for others will surely find the good in him. Of all the earth’s sad and lonesome creatures, the most helpless is he who loves not his fellowmen”.   The Rotarian, February 1923

 

High Achievers

A Paul Harris Fellowship is the highest award that a Rotarian can achieve. Whilst in some countries they can be bought, and indeed the purchase of a Paul Harris Fellowship for USD1000 is a pre requisite to joining some clubs, in New Zealand it is regarded as an honour that cannot be bought but must be earned.

Generally it is awarded in recognition of long and meritorious service to the community that fulfills the ideals of Rotary for the betterment of humanity, and is not limited to Rotarians but may be awarded by a club to any person who, in the eyes of the Club President and Board at the time, fulfills the requirements

 

Service Above Self

Recognised by awarding a pin, medal and certificate or if already a PHF a sapphire pin.
