Tax Deductible Gifts
The Rotary Club of Sydney Inc. funds specific charitable projects each year. Fundraising targets are established and the Club arranges fundraising events, as well as seeking donations, to achieve the fundraising objectives.
Details of current charitable projects and recent past projects are detailed in this website. Click the “Projects” tab for more information.
The Rotary Club of Sydney Benevolent Fund was established over 30 years ago to facilitate donors receiving an income tax deduction for donations to the Rotary Club of Sydney. It is a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) for Australian income tax purposes, which enables donors who are Australian residents and Australian companies to claim an income tax deduction for donations paid to the Fund.
Every dollar donated to the Benevolent Fund is used to fund charitable projects of the Rotary Club of Sydney. There are no fees or expenses deducted from your donation, so charities receive the full benefit of moneys paid to the Benevolent Fund by donors.
Ways to Donate

Wills and Bequests
Over recent years our Benevolent Fund has benefited from bequests arising from directions in Wills. These capital receipts from time to time have greatly enhanced the capability of the Rotary Club of Sydney to fund its annual projects by using income derived from the investment of the capital. We encourage you to speak to your lawyer about the inclusion of a bequest to the Rotary Club of Sydney Benevolent Fund for its general purposes in your Will. Your bequest will provide ongoing benefits to worthwhile charities that are being supported by our Rotary Club.
