Cambridge Rotary Charitable Trust – Grants 2020

Regretably, the Cambridge Rotary Charitable Trust will not be calling for grant applications this financial year.
 
Because of the current covid-19 situation and lockdown in NZ, Rotary Cambridge have not be able to run two of our major fund-raising projects. Consequently, the funds normally raised from these projects are not available for distribution to the Cambridge Community.
This year, to date, we have distributed approximately $30,000 to Cambridge Lifeskills and Rural Support, the two main beneficiaries from the Rotary Cambridge Garden Festival held in November 2019, to various Youth Projects and further funding is committed to Achievement House.
 
The Rotary Club of Cambridge Board are very sorry that, at this time, when we know many people are or will be in need, we are not able to help financially.
 
Stay safe, Stay well.

Rotary Fellowships

Posted on Jan 31, 2016
FORM A ROTARY FELLOWSHIP
Rotary Fellowships are independent groups of Rotarians, family members, program participants and alumni who share a common passion. Being part of a fellowship is a fun way to make friends from around the world.
 
WHAT FELLOWSHIPS ARE AVAILABLE?
Fellowship activities vary widely. Members come together around hobbies or interests such as cricket or jazz, or vocations such as writing or medicine. Some groups are purely social while others use their fellowship for service projects. View a list of Rotary Fellowships.
 
HOW DO I JOIN A FELLOWSHIP?
You can also contact a fellowship directly by using the information listed in the Rotary Fellowships directory. Or search our discussion groups to find Rotary and Rotaract members with similar interests.
 
HOW DO I START A FELLOWSHIP?
Chances are if you have a strong interest in something, there are others in the Rotary family who share it. Forming a fellowship starts with finding members for your group. Here’s how you can start:
  • Join a discussion group or start a new one. It's a great way to share your interest with other members.
  • Use Rotary’s presence on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to promote your idea.
  • Ask your district Rotary Fellowships chair for assistance. Reach out to district Rotary Fellowships chairs in other countries to build membership. Ask for contact information at rotaryfellowships@rotary.org.
Be sure you meet the criteria for a fellowship and apply for official recognition. See the Rotary Fellowships Handbook for details.
