We raise money in many ways - Gordon Markets, Bobbinhead Cycle Classic, barbeques, theatre nights, etc. All money raised is used for charitable purposes. We volunteer our time thus ensuring there are no overheads other than direct expenses in organising the activity.
All Rotary Clubs run two separate accounts: A Club Account which is money we spend on ourselves and a Projects Account which is money we spend on charitable causes.
The Club Account receives money from members' annual fees, meal charges, social events and the like. Money spent on meals for members, Rotary International and district fees, social functions and minor things such as name badges all come from the Club Account.
The Project Account receives income from fund raising activities and spends it purely on charitable projects and activities. Rotary is perhaps unique in that apart from direct expenses, Rotarian volunteers ensure there are no other overheads.
