The Heuser Community Leadership Society of the Rotary Club of Louisville was created for the purpose of encouraging and recognizing generous financial gifts by non-Rotarians to support our Club service projects.  

This giving society recognizes lifetime gifts to the Rotary Fund of Louisville, including those designated for the Promise Scholarship project.  The Rotary Fund of Louisville is the Club’s 501c3 tax exempt organization which operates exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, providing support and assistance to individuals, charitable and educational projects and organizations in the Louisville community and beyond.

Members of the Heuser Community Leadership Society will receive recognition throughout the year with special celebrations planned to commemorate their philanthropic leadership.

In addition, The Rotary Club of Louisville will provide Paul Harris Fellowships for gifts made by non-Rotarians, including those designated for the Promise Scholarship.  This is made possible by the members of our club who have pledged their unused Paul Harris Fellow recognition points for gifts they previously made to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International, to be used for recognition of gifts made to the Rotary Fund by non-Rotarians.

If you would like to donate and become a member of the Heuser Community Leadership Society, please see the following eligibility requirements:  


Rotarians and Non–Rotarians who make gifts of $5,000 or more to the Rotary Fund of Louisville including those designated to the Rotary Promise Scholarship Fund, per the following criteria:

  • Minimum of $5000 pledge made after 6/30/13 paid over no more than four years

*Non-Rotarians who meet the Heuser Society $5,000 eligibility requirement may also be honored with PHF.
