Why Rotary

Why Rotary?

We're for Communities

Rotary is a worldwide network of inspired men and women who translate their passions into relevant social causes, to change lives in communities.

Made up of over 1.2 million Rotary members - known as Rotarians - in 34,000 Rotary clubs in 200 countries and geographical areas around the world, Rotary International forms a global network of business, professional and community leaders who volunteer their time and talents to serve communities locally and around the world - and form strong, lasting friendships in the process. 

Rotary clubs, like the Rotary Club of Perth, are based within local communities, with their members meeting on a regular basis to enjoy friendship, networking, and to plan projects that will benefit the lives of others.

Rotary clubs depend on the skills, expertise and dedication of their members, who work hard to change the lives of people in communities both at home and abroad.

The Rotary Club of Perth supports the community in many ways. In August, we hold our Charity Fayre where we provide stalls for charities to promote their causes free of charge. We hold our annual Charity Golf Match at the King James VI in May and our major fund raising excercise towards the end of the year, the Silent Auction. Funds raised from these events allow us to support many local charities with limited access to funds as well as major charities such as Cornhill and CHAS. Apart from fund raising, we actively support communities such as building a sensory garden at Fairview School and maintaining the Korean Veterans Memorial Garden. However, it's not all work and no play. We have active golf, fishing and curling sections. We also have several social events during the year. 

If you would like to join the Rotary family, volunteer your time to a community project or make a donation, register your interest and your local club will contact you with details of how you can help.
