The Program
Partners in Philanthropy recognizes Bakersfield North Rotary club members and friends for financial contributions made to the Bakersfield North Rotary Foundation beyond those of ordinary membership and expressly to the program. The donations to this program are separate from contributions for foundation fundraisers, pass-through projects, regular quarterly fines, and meeting fines.  Donors have the opportunity to excel through the levels as their contributions reach the next level.
Our Partners

  • other impactful endeavors.
