Our Rotary Foundations
Funding Through Our Rotary Foundations…Supporting funds for local and international work!
The Rotary Club of Adelaide Charitable Trust Fund (CTF) began on 11 December, 1968. The Board at the time decided that members should have a fund into which they or indeed anyone, could make a Tax-Deductible donation towards the charitable works of the Club. At mid year 2018, the assets of the CTF stood at over $900,000. The current trustees have a vision to make this number stand at $1million on the occasion of the CTF’s Golden Anniversary in 2018. However, the CTF does not stand idle! Each year, as per its charter, the CTF distributes donations to Rotary Club of Adelaide projects which have deductible gift recipient status. Thousands of dollars have made their way to support worthy cases and work of our Club.
The Rotary Foundation transforms gifts of donations into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects. With more help, Rotary can make lives better in communities around the world. More than 90 percent of donations go directly to supporting service projects around the world. We are one of 35,000 clubs that carry out sustainable service projects that support Rotary’s six causes.
With help, to date Rotary has all but wiped out 99.9 percent of all polio cases.
Donations also help to train future peacemakers, support clean water, and strengthen local economies. Just one donation can help save a life. A child can be protected from polio with as little as 60 cents. Our partners make your donation go even further. For every $1 Rotary commits to polio eradication, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has committed $2.
