The Whangarei Rotary Club was established in 1925 and we have 15 members.  We distribute  approximately  $30,000 every year to humanitarian, educational and community programmes,  activities designed to empower the lives of people, advancing our ultimate goal of world understanding and peace.

There are two other Rotary Clubs in Whangarei that we sponsored.

Active in Your Community

Most of our Clubs’ Activities are carried out in “Whangarei“. 

We were instrumental in raising $125,000 for the Helicopter pad at the Northland Base Hospital and providing landing pads at Kaitaia, Kaeo and Kereikeri.

We raised over $60,000 for the Hospice in 1995,  involving the whole community.

In 1994 with the assistance of Stevensons  Auction we built a $35,000 children’s playground at the Town Basin, which has since been upgraded due to its popularity.

Every year we distribute approximately $30,000 into the community via the AK Franks, McCoy trusts & Sunshine Funds.
