are to be made available to support local community projects.

provision to assist modest local projects which offer benefit to the local
community. We call it our Community Chest and it is the initiative of President
Robert Menzies at the start of his year in office.
want us to be and be seen as being committed to our local community. I want us
to build on the contribution we already make locally and to strengthen our
links within the community. Our Club does such a lot both locally and
internationally but it is the local people who support us and enable us to
achieve so much and it is important that we support local people in return. Our
Community Chest is a way of doing just that.”
the Rotary Club invites local organisations or groups – schools, social clubs,
sports clubs etc – to apply for support. The criteria are straightforward.
are invited from organisations or groups but not from individuals;
projects must be new, clearly defined and quite separate from operational or
running costs or from projects already in place;
projects must be of benefit to the local community and this benefit must be
spelled out in the applications.
you want to know more about this proposal or about how to apply, contact us at
a word of caution. The Community Chest does not have unlimited resources – but
we want to see these resources spread across as many projects as possible.
