CENTURION PROGRAM                     

The Centurion Program is a District program to recognise donations of      AUD 100 to The Rotary Foundation.  The donation can be made as a single payment or accumulate over the period of the Rotary year.  Recognition is provided by the issuing of a Centurion pin the first year of achievement and by a certificate for ensuing years.

When a Rotarian qualifies as a Centurion, advice is provided to the District Centurion Chair who will arrange for the issuing of a pin or certificate.  The only requirement is for the Club Secretary to advise the amount of AUD 100 has been remitted to the Foundation.

To assist Rotarians to save and qualify as Centurions, a Centurion Collector is available from the District Chair at a cost of $2.  It is requested Clubs make a bulk purchase to simplify the administration and distribution of collectors.

Making becoming a Centurion easy

Every week, before you go to Rotary, slip $2 into your Centurion Collector

After 50 weeks (or sooner if you add the odd extra $2) …

  • take $100 top the Club for depositing in your account
                   or
  • take $100 your bank and transfer it to The Australian Rotary Foundation Trust.

New Collector poles are available from the District Chair, through Rotary Clubs.

Clubs can collect contributions from Rotarians and make a multiple donation to the Foundation.

A Club Action Plan

Appoint a Centurion Champion in your Club; someone who is enthusiastic about promoting The Rotary Foundation and the Centurion Program.

Set goals for the number of Centurions you would like to have in your Club.

Outline your Club Foundation giving Plan:

  • annual contribution of $100 per member
