The Rotary Club of Mount Barker is a local community-based service club, made up of dedicated members, donating their time to raise funds to spend in our local community, Australia wide & internationally. Rotarians generously work together to aid those in need.

The Club would like to hear from members of the local community, not for profit groups, environmental groups and individuals about community projects that you feel could be supported by the Rotary Club of Mt Barker with a one-off project grant of up to $1,000. Hence it is with excitement that the club is advising that the Rotary Club of Mount Barker Community Grant Program applications for 2019-2020 are now open.
 
We encourage you to tell us about a community project Rotary Club of Mt Barker could support. If successful, you will be asked to come and speak to the members of the Rotary Club of Mt Barker on the presentation evening in late February 2020.
