Augusta Rotary Foundation

This foundation was created in 2015 to enable donations to be tax deductible.  It's a 501c3  federal tax classification.

We are able to sponsor the Dolly Parton Imagination Library because of this 501c3 status and were able to get nonprofit mailing rates, as they also require.  Any donations for the Imagination Library or to the Club in general are to be made to the Augusta Rotary Foundation, not the Augusta Rotary Club.

The Augusta Rotary Club is a  501c4 which exempts it from Federal taxes.

Our Treasurer has separate checking and savings accounts to keep these two entities totally separate.



Dues are $30/month and includes meals at the meetings and the monthly Rotary magazine, mailed to your home. 


Contributory Recognitions

- Sustaining Member:  $100 annually to the Annual fund.  Each member is expected to be a sustaining member.
- Paul Harris Fellow:    $1000  total to the Annual fund.

   A Paul Harris Fellow certificate and a PH pin are given to recognize  this level.
- Paul Harris Member:  Commit to donating $1000 annually to the annual fund.
