The Rotary Club of Alliston is administered by a Board of Directors elected annually by its membership.  Although the Rotary Club of Alliston will administer many of its own projects, the club is willing to work and/or partner with other organizations.  To this end, other organizations are invited to request funds or other means of help.  This would normally be required to be in writing with a full description of the project directed to the sitting president or committee chair.  All projects require approval of the club and are subject to available funding.
 
The Rotary Club of Alliston will normally only work in other communities both domestically and internationally through the Rotary Clubs in those communities.
