Donations Trust

Rebuilding communities in the long term is just as important as responding following the immediate aftermath of disasters.

A helping hand for the long term.


As well as supporting in the immediate aftermath, Rotary is able to use our network of clubs across the globe to introduce sustainable, community development projects in the longer term.

The Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland Donations Trust is a registered charity, established in 2007, which collates donations and makes grants to Rotary projects working to rebuild communities.

Since then the charity has continued its work with the purpose of responding to major disasters at home and abroad in the reconstruction phase following a disaster.

Typical projects include constructing and equipping school and community centres, rebuilding infrastructure and providing rescue vehicles.

Over the last two years, the Donations Trust has collated funds for earthquakes in Italy, New Zealand and Nepal, flooding in the UK, Ireland and Pakistan as well as hurricanes in the Caribbean.


Supporting the Donations Trust

If you would like to support the Donations Trust, you can:

  • Send a cheque, payable to Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland Donations Trust, Kinwarton Road, Alcester, B49 6PB
  • Use our online payment option through our BT myDonate website

Unless an appeal has been specified your donation will be allocated to our ‘General Disaster Fund’ which has been set up by the trustees to be less restrictive to one particular disaster and funds can be utilised throughout the world.


Current Appeals

Following the most recent headlines relating to the floods currently effecting the south-western region of India, the Donations Trust has launched an India Flood Appeal. Funds raised will be used to re-establish communities once the water recedes through links with local Rotary Clubs.

This is not an emergency appeal but an appeal looking to support effected communities as a whole once the reconstruction phase has started.
