This program deserves our special support each year. This is Rotary’s National Community Service Project and is providing valuable research funds to improve the quality of life for present and future generations of Australians. The Research Fund is supported annually by over 90% of Rotary Clubs in Australia. In its 29 years, the Research Fund has raised over $25.7 million for medical research.

The current focus is funding research into Mental Illness which is so prevalent in our society and can be so debilitating to sufferers and distressing to their families and friends. However Rotary clubs may wish to sponsor research in other areas as a “Funding Partner” e.g. Motor Neurone Disease, Spinal Cord Repair, Heart Disease or Cancer Research.
