Rotary District 9810 Charitable Services

The Trustee for Rotary District 9810 Charitable Services (ABN 93 355 920 863) supports the Australian service projects of Rotarians.

RD9810CS is a Public Benevolent Institution (PBI) registered with the Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commission (ACNC) and Australian Taxation Office (ATO) as a Tier 1 Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR). 

Its Purpose is for the ‘direct relief of such poverty, sickness, suffering, distress, misfortune, disability, destitution or helplessness as arouses compassion in the community’.  Eligible projects that comply with the Purpose and Objectives of the Trust as a PBI, may be located anywhere in Australia.

RD9810CS provides administration services for projects established under the Trust including receiving funds, issuing tax receipts and preparing audited financial statements. Each project is established as an Unincorporated Joint Venture managed by a Project Committee that reports to Rotary District 9810 Charitable Services.

There is no limit to the number of projects in which primary host sponsors can participate with Rotary District 9810 Charitable Services at any one time. There are currently five approved Joint Venture projects operating under RD9810CS.  Details of each project can be found on the Projects page.

How can your Rotary Club establish an eligible project?

Your project must qualify by reducing the incidence of poverty, sickness, suffering or helplessness in the community. Typically you will be partnering with a not for profit community service organisation under an unincorporated Joint Venture arrangement that seeks to raise between $20,000 to $50,000 (or more) per year from tax deductible donations. You will need to prepare a project outline and send it to the Secretary, Rotary District 9810 Charitable Services, PO Box 4144 Croydon Hills 3136 or via email to donkinnear9810@bigpond.com
