Whereas early Rotary projects tended to get started with initial funding from a philanthropist, the typical club in the twenty first century seldom has access to such resources. Hence there was a new reliance on the skills of Rotarians to achieve the funding of projects.
An opportunity arose when The Rotary Foundation, when inaugurating its Future Vision plan for grants, selected 9940 as one of the 100 Districts world-wide to trial the plan over a 3-year period. Thus, there was an opportunity to make an early application for a Global Grant. 
The Rotary Peace, Remembrance and Community Forests Trust is a centennial initiative – marking the founding of Rotary in Aotearoa New Zealand in 1921. During the century, Rotary’s power has come from harnessing communities and volunteers to make a difference.
In the 1960’s, when Rotary was rapidly expanding, Ron Harrison, the Wellington Manager of New Zealand Breweries, with headquarters in Molesworth Street, called a meeting to establish a new Rotary club. With the sponsorship of the Rotary Club of Wellington, the Rotary Club of Wellington North came into being on 18 November 1965 with 26 Charter Members, whose names are listed on page 7. The initial Club gathering took place at midday in the Battle Bar of the Waterloo Hotel to enjoy conviviality and then adjourned to the Dining Room for the first meeting. Ron Harrison, as the first president, occupied that role for the next 18 months.
