Dear San Mateo Rotarian,

Over the past several years, we have recognized our many Club members who achieved various levels of Paul Harris award status.  This signifies their tremendous support of the International Service efforts of The Rotary Foundation and our Club.  If you want to know your Donor History, do the following: In/The Rotary Foundation/Foundation Reports/Donor History Report/View Report/Donor History Report.

We encourage you to invest in this year’s International Service efforts by participating in the Every Rotarian Every Year (EREY) campaign.  EREY will run until November 10, 2023.  

We are asking all members to contribute at least $25.  The District 5150 Goal is $250/member.  You will impact many lives.  There are three ways to give:

  1. You can donate online by clicking the QR Code at the bottom of this page or on the DONATE NOW! link at the top of the page.
  2. You can text EREY to 844-422-6444 for a donation link.
  3. You can send a check payable to the San Mateo Rotary Foundation. 
Please send your check to: The Rotary Club of San Mateo, P.O. Box 95, San Mateo, CA 9440


District 5150 will match all donations from non Paul Harris Fellows for $100 to $250.  With this match, you will be half way to Paul Harris Fellow status ($1,000/level).  In addition, for each $25 donated, you will receive a ticket for the District 5150 raffle ($6,300 in VISA Cards).  

All EREY donations are returned to our Club as District Designated Funds (DDF).  This money supports Global and District Grant projects identified by our Club’s International/World Community Service Committee.  DDF funds help Rotary promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, support education, grow local economies, and combat climate change.  

Over the last three years, our DDF supported Tree Planting by our C3 Climate Committee, and projects in Ecuador (Business Development and Microcredit Loans), Peru (Greenhouses), and India (Education) that were sponsored by our fellow District 5150 clubs.  In 2019 our club's DDF supported the Global Grant we sponsored in Guatemala.  (Watch this 5 minute video montage of the recently completed Hillsdale Effect/Interact Study Tour of our Global Grant Project in Guatemala, complete with beautiful photos and inspiring quotes from our Interact/Effect students:
