The Paul Harris fellowship is named for Paul Harris, who founded Rotary with three associates in Chicago in 1905.

The Fellowship was established in his honor in 1957 to express appreciation for a contribution of $1000 to the humanitarian and educational programs of the Rotary Foundation. Those programs include an array of projects that save and invigorate the lives of people around the world and enhance international friendship and understanding.

Foundation programs provide educational opportunities, food, potable water, health care, immunization, and shelter for millions of people. These activities are funded, implemented and managed by Rotarians and Rotary Clubs around the globe.
