RACGRotary Australia Compassionate Grants program manages Dick Smith’s $1,000,000 donation to be distributed to disadvantaged Australians identified by local Rotary clubs or Rotary districts as being worthy of financial assistance.

The entire donation from Dick Smith has now been allocated and applications for new projects have closed.

RARF – Rotary Australia Relief Fund is a Level 2 Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) fund to enable collection of funds that are not directed at specific projects.
