Rotary Australia World Community Service Ltd. (RAWCS) was  formed to support Australian Rotarians and Rotary Clubs in assisting disadvantaged communities and individuals with humanitarian aid projects.



Large corporate donators and philanthropic organisations have previously used RAWCS services to take advantage of our DGR status and paid services charges on donations. This allowed services to be provided to Rotarians, Rotary Clubs and Rotary Districts at no charge.

Recently, however, a number of these organisations have received DGR status from the government. This has resulted in a dramatic drop in this RAWCS income stream.

The delivery of all services has costs associated. In order for RAWCS to continue its high standard of project service delivery, the Board has resolved there is no choice but to end the Rotary exemption.

From the 1 July 2017 all donations will be subject to a service charge of 2.5%. This rate compares favourably with the service charges of similar organisations, which are generally between 5-10%. This change will ensure RAWCS’ long-term financial sustainability and high standard of project facilitation.

Thank you for your understanding.
