Community Service

Past Assistant Governor Casey J Tan, Rotary Carlton
District Community Service Chair

Community Service is “the heartbeat of Rotary”; where we make a difference in making this a Better World to live in.

Clubs have a central role in the determination, funding, and execution of Community Service programs and projects.

Effective Community Service Projects:

  • Are relevant to the community
  • Anchor a Club to its community
  • Identify and understand the key issues
  • Involve other organisations and stakeholders for the best outcomes
  • Provide opportunities for the promotion of Rotary and membership attraction.
