Community Grants Program

Victor Harbor Rotary supporting local community projects through the Community Grants Program.

Community Grants Program 2021

Up to $5,000 is available for community organisations to assist programs, service delivery or capital improvements that improve the quality of life, independence and wellbeing of people within the Victor Harbor community.

The Community Grants Program is funded by activities held throughout the year such as BBQs and the very successful annual Art Show, which enables the club to help organisations in the Victor Harbor community. 

The Victor Harbor Rotary Club has just held its most successful Art Show for many years and we are committed to passing this on to the community,’ said Club President Julie Irwin. ‘This has been a challenging time for many local organisations so this is a great opportunity to kick start that project!’

To increase chances of success, applicants should be able to:

  • demonstrate that a grant is necessary for the project to be able to proceed;
  • address areas of need within the community; 
  • have a long-term benefit for the community; and,

1. Renovations to the historic Yilki Cemetery

2. Training for Rural Youth in the Dairy Industry

3. The setting up of a new Breakfast Program at a local Primary School

4. Installation of a Defibrillator for a Sports Club
