Projects

The Rotary Club of Gerringong Sunrise runs many community events throughout the year. These events not only raise funds for our philanthropic activities, but are important in themselves and are highly valued in the Gerringong-Gerroa community.

In the 2015/16 financial year the club donated over $55,000 to various organisations, charities and worthwhile causes.

As well as the brief descriptions below, there are photos in the Gallery on this site for some of the activities. If you would like more information or would like to participate in any of our projects, contact us and a Rotarian will get back to you. 

You don't need to be a member of Gerringong Rotary to play a vital role.
