Giving and Volunteering
There are so many ways Rotarians give back to our communities, both locally and across the globe with donations of our time and money!
 
Rotary Foundation
One way is to donate to the Rotary Foundation. Sooner Rotarians have a history of giving generously to the Foundation. Just last year our members donated more than $32,500--the best in our district! Since our club formed our members have donated more than $365,000!
It’s important to note that after a three-year investment period a full 50% of the Foundation gifts from our club and others in our district return to our district for local program grants.

Paul Harris Fellow is the recognition for those donors of $1,000 to the Foundation. Each time a member gives another $1,000 they receive Paul Harris Plus recognition. Click on this link-- Paul Harris Fellows —to see the list!
