Wellington Rotary Charitable Trust
The Wellington Rotary Charitable Trust (WRCT) was established by the Rotary Club of Wellington in 1984 to enable members of the club to contribute financially to worthwhile causes either with a gift in their lifetime or through a bequest in their will, and to support such causes with the funds donated. The Trust also manages the net proceeds from the charitable fundraising activities of the club.
The Trust does not accept public applications but responds to requests that have been made through the Board of the Rotary Club of Wellington. The Trust and the Rotary Club of Wellington work closely together through a Partnership Agreement established in 2010.
The Trust deed specifies that Trust funds are for “charitable purposes”... “whether it relates to the relief of poverty, the financial advancement of education or religion, or any other matter beneficial to the community.” The Trust also manages funds which have been bequeathed with specific individual grant purposes.
