Our Rotary Foundations
Funding Through Our Rotary Foundations…Supporting funds for local and international work!
The Rotary Club of Adelaide Charitable Trust Fund celebrated 50 years of support to the Rotary Club of Adelaide inc in December 2018. It was created to accept tax deductible donations from members and the public to support the Charitable and service objectives of the Club. Thousands of dollars have passed through the Charitable Trust fund and supported the charitable work of the Club since 1968.Between 2012 and 2018 the Club Members built the Capital of the Trust to $1 million and income from the invested capital should yield around $50,000 per annum to be distributed as the Board of the Club determines and in accordance with governing legislation. A portion of the income earned will be retained each year to build the capital.
The Rotary Foundation is a non-profit corporation which transforms your gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world through international humanitarian, educational, and cultural exchange programs. As the charitable arm of Rotary, we tap into a global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money, and expertise into our priorities, such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Foundation Grants empower Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact.
The Rotary Foundation promotes peace through our service projects, peace fellowships, and scholarships. Our members are taking action to address the underlying causes of conflict, including poverty, inequality, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources.
