Rotary Clubs of Australia 2019 National Drought Appeal
The combined Rotary Districts of Australia have coordinated a 2019 National Fundraiser to provide much needed incremental funds from the public and Corporates around Australia. This should not be confused with RAWCS who are distributing Government Funds. The 2019 National Fundraiser will be an incredible Public Relations opportunity for our membership and Clubs.
The public and Corporate funds will be managed by the DGs via an Appeal Distribution Committee. Rotary Districts in drought affected areas will work with Clubs to identify persons / families in need of assistance; such as food, education supplies, health services, clothing etc. The Districts will compile a Register of persons/families in need of assistance. Each District will then request a block grant via the Bendigo Bank on-line portal which will be processed by a Grants Advisory Committee. Our D9820 Governor Adrian Froggatt is a member of the Appeal Distribution Committee.
