Last month we talked about
how to get to where the
reports are, and perhaps
you’ve spent a little time
honing your skills in this
regard. If not, just go to
‘My Rotary’, ‘Online Tools’,
‘Rotary Club Central’ and
then click on ‘Reports’. You
then click on ‘Foundation
Giving’ and you’re set to go.
The first report I want to deal with is the Club
Recognition Summary. That’s the one totally
devoted to your club and will give you lots of
information. Once you’ve reached the Foundation
reports, just click on ‘Club Recognition Summary’
and you’re ready to go.
At the top of the screen (just above the report),
there are two drop-down boxes. You don’t have
to worry about the ‘Rotary Club Name’ box, but
the ‘Club Members’ box is very handy. This is the
default setting and lists only current members
(excluding Honorary members). If you click on
the arrow in the drop-down area, you’ll get a
‘Members (All Values)’ option and by going with
this one you’ll get every member since your club
chartered who has a PHF or has contributed
money to The Rotary Foundation. Very handy for
those historian types!
Across the top you have your district number
(who could forget that), your club number and
lots of other information about the recognition
standing of members. On the far-right side at the
top, it tells you how much money (in US dollars)
you have contributed to The Rotary Foundation
In the report body, you see ID numbers for
each member, their recognition amounts (this
is a combination of contributions and points
transferred in), the current PHF level, when
their first PHF was presented, and when the
last contribution was made and where it went.
The last two columns show if a member is a
Benefactor, and if he or she is using Rotary direct
(online) to contribute.
That’s about all for now, but this is a very
handy report. Remember, only presidents,
secretaries, treasurers and Foundation chairs can
access them, so if you want the information just
ask the question of one of the above.

What do we mean when we talk
about peace? In 1921, the fourth
object of Rotary was established:
“The advancement of international
understanding, goodwill and peace
through a world fellowship of business
and professional persons united in the ideal of service.”
In Rotary today, we see peace not as an abstract concept,
but as a living, dynamic expression of human development,
integral to our humanitarian mission. Much of our work for
peacebuilding depends on the ability of Rotary members to
execute three important activities: forming transformative
partnerships, raising funds to support our many hundreds of
projects, and recruiting and supporting Rotary Peace Fellows in
their work. This year, The Rotary Foundation formed a strategic
partnership with the Institute for Economics and Peace, one
of the leading organisations in identifying and measuring the
attitudes, institutions and structures that create and sustain
Through this partnership, Rotary will work with the institute to
create an online learning portal for Rotarians and peace fellows
to build on their current expertise, apply new methods and
mobilise communities to address the issues underlying conflicts.
Our goal is to foster community-based projects in peace and
conflict resolution that are practical and impactful.
Rotary has also launched a Rotary Peace Centres Major Gifts
Initiative to raise funds for new partnerships, while continuing
to garner contributions to educate and support our peace
fellows and more.
President Ian Riseley’s six peacebuilding conferences –
taking place globally from February to June – will explore
the relationship among peace, Rotary’s Areas of Focus and
environmental sustainability. Our history proves that you don’t
need to be a diplomat to make peace.
When you mentor a student struggling to graduate, you
are a peacebuilder. When you launch any project to support
economic development in your community, you are building
conditions for sustainable peace and conflict management.
When you support and collaborate with a Rotary Peace Fellow,
you are advancing peace.
Today’s complex conflicts require more creative community-
based initiatives. Together we can really make a difference.
