The Downtown Rotary Club of New Braunfels is a 100% Paul Harris Fellow club. Every member of the club has shown their commitment to the efforts of Rotary International by becoming a Paul Harris Fellow. Very few clubs within Rotary International have 100% of their members make this financial commitment.

Paul Harris was the founder of Rotary International. Individual Rotarians who donate $1,000 or more to the Annual Programs Fund, PolioPlus, or the Humanitarian Grants Program become members of the Rotary Foundation and are recognized as Paul Harris Fellows.
