The Centurion Plan
Rotary Foundation logo
This is a very easy way of getting into the habit of making a personal contribution to The Rotary Foundation.  The commitment you are asked to make is simply contribute* A$100 per year as long as you are able to.  In this case, the money is paid into The Australian Rotary Foundation Trust  making your contribution tax deductible*.  The initial commitment is recognised by the presentation of the ‘Centurion’ lapel badge, and each year our District sends out renewal notices asking all participants to continue their support.
This is not a large commitment but an important one in terms of our overall contribution to The Foundation.  All Centurion contributions from Rotarians count towards their Club’s Annual Giving total.  It is also picked up as part of the District’s contribution resulting in 50% of the contribution coming back to our District to use as support funds for the programs we want to support.
It is important that new applicants forward their application form and funds through the correct channels.  On previous occasions, these has been sent directly to Rotary International at Parramatta and while this results in the money being received, and a tax deductible receipt being issued, the pin certicate will not be issued.  This is a District responsibility and for that reason the form and cheque/credit card details must first go to our Centurion Chairman, who will issue the badge before passing the cheque on to The Rotary Foundation.
Partners of Rotarians can also participate in the program and their support would be most welcome.  Click here to download the Centurion Application form as a Word document or a PDF file. Click here for the multiple donor form.
