Each year, Kalamunda Rotary has a Community Grants Program (up to $5,000) and a Community Donations Program (above $5,000). Successful applicants and recipients are invited to speak to Kalamunda Rotary at a dinner meeting to outline the benefits of the funding grant and how Kalamunda Rotary will be publicly acknowledged through the project or program.
Community Grants Program
The Community Grants Program is open for applications from January 1 to the end of April.
The aims of the Community Grants Program are:
  • To enhance and help the Kalamunda City community grow
