Serving the community

  • Our core project each year is bringing the World Press Photo Exhibition to Auckland. Run since 2010, the exhibition is used to raise money for a range of local charities. It is also an opportunity for our Club members to volunteer at the event. Read more at www.worldpressphoto.co.nz
  • Since 2008, the Club has run a golf invitational fundraising tournament as a successful way to increase both club fellowship and fundraising for further charitable works. The Club has both organised and regularly funds candidates to attend RYLA – the Rotary Youth Leadership Assembly.  Read more at www.ryla.co.nz/ where money was given to the Starship Foundation and Kidney Kids.
  • At international level the Club supports (amongst other worthy projects) the Rotary Foundation and Rotary's Polio Plus programme, which collectively have distributed hundreds of millions of dollars towards education, health and support of the handicapped, underprivileged and hungry throughout the world.
  • The Polio Plus programme, launched in 1985, aims to immunise all of the world's children against polio.  To date over two billion children have benefited. Working with the World Health Organisation, UNICEF and the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, Rotary has contributed nearly US$700 million to keep alive the dream of a polio-free world.
