Our contributions to the Rotary International Foundation provide funds to International programs such as year long Rotary Scholarships, Group Exchange Studies, Polio Plus and many more humanitarian programs.  See


Members of the Rotary Club of Harlingen take pride in participating in the "largest, private scholarship foundation in the world."  We have many "Paul Harris Fellows" in our club plus sustaining members who are contributing toward earning a Paul Harris Fellowship.


To become a Paul Harris Fellow, a Rotarian must make a $1,000 contribution to the RI Foundation either as a lump sum or, as many members do, by joining a wheel.  Wheel members donate $100, $200, or $250 per year.  When their name is drawn, a Paul Harris Fellowship is conferred on them.  Many members continue contributing and achieve multiples PHFs in honor of living or deceased family members and friends.
