About Us - About RCW - Major Activities

Our key focal points

Each year the Rotary Club of Wellington and its associated charitable entities make grants worth many hundreds of thousands of dollars to worthwhile projects in the region, nationally and internationally.

Each year RCW engages in a major joint-fundraising project with iconic Wellington Department Store, Kirkcaldie & Stains. Beneficiaries so far have been the animal hospital at Wellington Zoo, The Wellington Hospitals & Health Foundation.

Each year RCW organises the very successful Jumbo Tennis Event to raise funds for Junior Tennis in Wellington and in 2012 the Wellington Free Ambulance.

In 2011 we introduced an annual Rotary Forum programme to provide an opportunity for Wellingtonians to discuss matters of great moment.

In 2012 we inaugurated the Sir Paul Callaghan Awards for Young Science Orators to commemorate the legacy of one of New Zealand's greatest scientists and the annual Eureka! Symposium where the SPC Awards are contested.
