Prestonwood Flag Lease Program

What is our Flag Lease Program?
The Rotary Club of Prestonwood invites you to join your friends and neighbors in displaying the U.S. flag on five national holidays, all of which are important in the history of our country. This Flag Lease Program is the primary fundraiser for the Prestonwood Rotary Club to support its programs, which provide health, humanitarian, and youth service programs throughout our community.
Our Flag Program also offers service projects for Scouting and youth groups that can financially support them as they assist with the set up and removal of the flags on each holiday.

Proceeds from the Flag Program go to the Prestonwood Rotary Foundation in support of many projects, including Prestonwood Elementary School, Challenge Air for Kids, and water projects for children and their families. The Prestonwood Rotary Club also hosts two annual award luncheons to honor local law enforcement in the Fall and fire and rescue in the Spring.

What do we do?
When you lease a flag, we do the following:

  1. Purchase the flags, display, store, and maintain them—it is all done for you. (The flags remain the property of The Rotary Club of Prestonwood.)
  2. Install a plastic sleeve with a cap in the ground near your front curb and mark the curb for the flag positions. No brackets or fixtures will be attached to your home.
  3. On each of the five holidays, deliver a 3’ x 5’ U. S. flag mounted on a 10-foot metal pole and place the flag in the plastic sleeve.
  4. Remove the flag, return it to storage and provide any maintenance as required
What you need to do to participate?
Once you sign a Flag Program lease make an annual payment of $60.00, it will be necessary for you to do only the following:

  1. Advise the install team on the placement location for the in- ground plastic sleeve to avoid sprinklers, plumbing, and utilities or electrical service hazards.
  2. Ensure that the plastic sleeve does not rise above the surface of the ground where it could become a hazard to lawn maintenance equipment.
  3. Contact your representative at The Rotary Club of Prestonwood if the flag is damaged.
Tax Deduction
Your participation in our Flag Program is tax deductible. Prestonwood Rotary Foundation is registered with the IRS as a tax exempt 501.c.3 organization. With a payment of $60.00, you can deduct $50.00.
