The work of our Club is dependent upon having the funds to complete the projects we have undertaken. We have an annual fund-raising budget excess of R500 000. Donations of goods usually covers up to R100 000 annually, therefore we still have to find R400 000 in cash each year.

Popular fund-raising events that are repeated annually include our Golf Day and the Business Sports Breakfast.

We also “sell” our labour at Africa’s largest week-long wine-tasting festival, Winex. Part of the funds raised from this event are used to support Rotary Foundation’s US$100 per member, per year campaign.

A Fun Walk raises funds expressly for the benefit of children in need.

Other fund-raisers have included Variety Shows, Gala Dinners, Donkey Derbys, Raffles and too many more to mention here.

The Fund-Raising committee continually strive to find new and innovative ways to raise funds needed for the Club to complete its many projects.
