The Prosper Rotary started its flag program in 2009. Last year, we place over 1,100 flags throughout the neighborhoods of Prosper.
What do you get when you subscribe to the Prosper Rotary Flag Program?
You will have a 3’ x 5’ American Flag mounted on a metal pole placed (and retrieved) in front of your house on five patriotic holidays during the year: Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day and Veterans Day.
How much does it cost to participate in the Prosper Rotary Flag Program?
The current cost is $60 for the year with no proration for those who sign-up after the start of the annual season that begins with Memorial Day.
The $60 dollars is a donation to the Prosper Rotary Foundation which is a 501(c)3 charitable organization registered with the IRS to receive tax deductible donations.
How are the flags installed?
A reusable plastic sleeve is installed approximately one foot inside the curb line generally in front of the front door and below the grass line. Its position is marked discreetly on the curb so that it may be easily found for the next holiday.
How are the funds raised by the Prosper Rotary Flag Program used?
Very modest direct overhead cost of the flag program are retained to cover the cost of the flags, poles sleeves, third-party credit card and software fees and distribution fees. In total, these are less than 10% of the generated revenue.
The remaining 90% plus is used to support nonprofit organizations and projects right here in the Prosper community. Examples include:
We provide scholarships to Collin College for graduating Prosper ISD Seniors. With the continued increases in enrollment, this opportunity will continue to grow.
Support Cornerstone NCT Family Assistance Network
Support Neighbors Nourishing Neighbors food pantry (formerly Bethlehem Place)
Kids Prosper Kids (Organization of Prosper ISD students supporting Ghanaian outreach)
