Rotary is a global network of over 1.2 million volunteers who share common interests in helping to create sustainable change – across the globe and within our own communities.
Locally, the Rotary Club of Eltham is an active and inclusive group of people committed to supporting those in need. We work on projects that support our local community, we support young people through education, self-development and student exchange programs and we also support international projects that address poverty, disadvantage and disasters.
In 2023-2024, the Rotary Club of Eltham donated a total of $108,000 to both local and international projects. The full details of the Club's activities are contained in the Rotary Club of Eltham Annual Report for 2023-2024, which can be read online here.
Our club has 55 members, comprising men and women of all ages from a diverse range of backgrounds.

A BIG THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS NEIGHBOURS! - A successful community project to round-off the 2023-24 program.

Eltham Rotarians did a letterbox drop inviting their neighbours to donate to a Canned Food Drive in their local streets on 22nd June. Those who were able gave generously. All donations, whether large or small, came together to make a collective result of over 2,000 cans of food delivered to the Manningham Carenet/Diamond Valley Community Support Food Collective Project. The project serves people in need across Nillumbik, Banyule and Manningham. What a generous community we live in!

Many neighbours left notes of thanks for the opportunity Rotary gave them to participate. Some other neighbours who slept-in or forgot the collection time (or day!) rang their Rotarian neighbour and dropped-off their late donations to them.
This is a great project to increase community awareness of Rotary and show how we can work with our neighbours to provide support for those doing it tough in these times of high housing and living costs.

What a result for a couple of hours input!



Change your community with us by volunteering on a local project.
