Encouraging Accelerated Giving to the Rotary Foundation


The Society was formed in September 2004 at the Rotary Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona
to promote regular, significant, annual giving to the Rotary Foundation.

As of June 2012, White Hat donations to the Foundation have exceeded
$3,000,000 US, with more than 200 members.


In Memoriam

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.
