Rotary Club of Christchurch South
Community Contributions

Christchurch South Rotary has a proud tradition of assisting both local and international communities.

From July 2018 to March 2022 we have donated over $97,000 to various local and international causes.
Some of the ways we have helped locally include donating to the Christchurch City Mission, Linwood Avenue Community, AVIVA, Christchurch Aunties, Life Education Trust, Kids Foundation, The Champion Centre, Young Singers in Harmony and to the Crossover Trust (for the Hoon Hay Hoops Project). We also collect funds with our community partners such as the Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Society, AVIVA, Pink Ribbon and work collaboratively with other Rotary Clubs with their fundraising initiatives or donating to their causes. Grants from the district have also allowed us to support One Mother to Another and She is Not Your Rehab.
Our signature fundraising projects include the sale of chicken manure where we partner with St Thomas of Canterbury Rowing Team. We have held successful Christmas parties for primary schools in our locality and annually support youth to attend Rotary Youth Leadership Awards.  
Internationally, we donate annually to Rotary New Zealand World Community Services for disaster relief in the Pacific and Rotary's End Polio Now campaign. We have also donated to Interplast and Rotary Give Every Child a Future and give annually to The Rotary Foundation  which funds development and humanitarian projects all over the world.
