The Red Wings Program was instigated by 2006-7 Rotary International
president William Boyd to acknowledge Rotarians who were participating
in the "Every Rotarian - Every Year" program which he initiated at the
beginning of his term. Individuals desiring to participate in the
Red Winds Program voluntarily commit that they will contribute $100 or
more annually the The Rotary Foundation (TRF).
There are several ways
that a Rotarian may initiate participation in the program. A check
may be made out to The Rotary Foundation and given to the World
Community Service (WCS) chair at any club meeting. Additionally, a
contribution can be made using the
"Every Rotarian - Every Year" form. The form should be
completed and either mailed directly to the address on the form or given
to the WCS chair. Forms mailed directly to TRF may not be
acknowledged for 3 to 4 weeks. Another method of participating is
to complete the
TRF Direct form. This form allows for periodic automatic
payments the TRF ($10/month minimum). Make sure you select the
"Annual Programs Fund" in order to accumulate Paul Harris Fellowship
recognition points. Members may also go "on-line"
to make contributions to TRF. If you have not previously done this
you will have to first register. In all instances you will need the
following information. Your Rotary district number is 5100.
Your Rotary club number is 292.
