Supporting our community

100% volunteer

Rotary is where neighbours, friends and problem-solvers share ideas and take action to create lasting change. 100% of proceeds raised are put towards local and international beneficiaries - Rotary Club of Ku-ring-gai is run by volunteers. We have no management fees. Many (most) of our projects are instigated, developed and managed by our members. Help us help make a difference!
