Our Friend, PDG Patsy Derr, passed away in November 2012. She was our White Hat Secretary/Treasurer for many years.
Her efforts and world-wide contacts expanded the White Hat Society across Rotary and helped the Rotary Foundation tremendously.
She was loved by many and missed by all.
Duties of Membership
Donate US $5,000 to The Rotary Foundation in a Rotary year.
Recruit one other Rotarian to do the same.
Donations may take the form of cash instruments, credit cards, stock and other capital assets, or irrevocable insurance policies made to the Bequest Society.
Contributions should be made directly to the Rotary Foundation. Donors should notify PDG Ed Mullen, White Hat Chair, firstname.lastname@example.org, 254 698 2304, of their contributions and status.
All contributions will be credited to the Rotarian Donor, Club, and District. The donor may indicate the program or Fund to which the donation should be applied.
Contributions qualify for Paul Harris Fellowships if the donor specifies the Annual Fund as the recipient.
Each additional $5,000 donation will be awarded another Concho for the White Hat pin.
The Russell-Hampton Company has created an exclusive White Hat Society Pin at no cost for the Membership. A pin with additional Conchos will be awarded indicating increasing levels of giving. The Russell-Hampton Company maintains a link on its website to publicize the Society.
