In 1968 the Rotary Club of Adelaide established a Charitable Trust fund to receive be-quests and donations to the Club and to channel them to organisations that aligned with the Club’s philanthropic objectives.

The Fund operates under the stewardship of the RCA Foundation.

Since 2016, the Fund has made philanthropic donations in excess of $500,000 to South Australian charities supporting their community programs.

The Community Grants Program in the past has made grants of $5,000 to $30,000 to South Australian community groups annually. The grant application window is in March-April of each year and results are notified in July.

There will be no grants made in 2023 and the Program will resume in a revised form in 2024.

Full details of the RCA Foundation will be in additional pages on this site which are currently under development.

We gratefully acknowledge the enthusiasm and support of our partner organisations
