LOCAL: The club raises funds (while having fun) by running community markets at Goolwa and Port Elliot on the 1st and 3rd weekends each month. Funds are also raised through small events such as sausage sizzles and quiz nights. It allocates funds to make possible local projects that serve sections of the local community. It also assists with environmental activities, community event management, awards, youth development, driver education and sponsors the annual Victor Harbor Christmas pageant in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Victor Harbor. Where possible it works with other community organisations to build community capacity by making a difference.
NATIONAL: Funds are allocated in response to need – especially in response to natural disasters, health research and the provision of emergency resources.
INTERNATIONAL: The Rotary Club of Encounter Bay has several distinct International projects. For many years the club has worked to help establish a school for orphans in Nakuru, Kenya and more recently in promoting literacy in the central highlands of Haiti and in taking action against Malaria.
