The funds that our clubs raise each year are distributed to selected projects that may be identified through the year, and through our two annual funding rounds.

Although we do fund a wide range of projects, our club has the following funding priorities:

  • Children and Youth
  • Education
  • Local Community
  • The Rotary Foundation

Applications must be on our application form, which you can DOWNLOAD HERE. Applications should be emailed to [email protected].
