What are some of our fundraising projects?
We raise funds by running two major events each year and all the money raised is given to worthy charities and needy people locally nationally and internationally.
In November we have our Annual Charity Golf Day fundraiser and in December we run our Christmas Trailer Raffle at Eastland. We have other fund raising sources from our sales of Rotary Cakes and Puddings, plus other initiatives as they come to hand. New members often bring fund raising ideas to our group – and the more we raise – the more we can give away to the needy.
Where does the money go?
We have a very large list of where our assistance and funds are allocated. Gifting is done by the members after consideration and consultation and we are very careful to ensure we get great value for any assistance or money we gift.
Some areas where we assist are :
Uniting Wesley Homeless Assistance
Ringwood Men’s Shed
Supporting Mental Health Research eg Youth Suicide, PTSD
Reaching Out Because We Can – Homeless Assistance
Youth Refuge Chicken Coop
Maroondah Community Assist
Irabina Autism Services Sensory Garden
