Who are we?
Who Are We?
We are a diverse group of dedicated people, who want to make positive changes in our community and the world. Our club members share a passion for community service and friendship. Becoming a Rotarian in our club connects you with a diverse, inclusive group, who share your drive to give back.
What is Rotary Club of Karrinyup?
The Rotary Club of Karrinyup was chartered in 1974 and currently meets on Tuesday evenings at 6.00pm for a 6.30 start. It works in and with both the local and International communities striving to make the world a better place, one project at a time.
Located in the northern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia, our major fundraiser and community presence is the Stirling Farmers' Market, held in the City of Stirling car park on Sunday mornings. In previous years we operated a Food Van at the Rotary Club of Scarborough's weekly Car-Park Market and an Annual Community Fair.
Our current Community Service beneficiaries include, but are not limited to: Australian Rotary Health, Foodbank WA, Australian Alzheimer's Research Foundation, Stirling Women's Centre, Riding for the Disabled Carine, Trigg Island Surf Life Saving Club, The Pinnalce Foundation and Camp Quality. Previous major projects included supplying a moblie ear clinic to service communities in the Kimberley region of Western Australia and the Karrinyup Community Men's Shed, now an independent entity.
In addition, our International Service arm supports Polio Eradication, Interplast, Shelter Box, Bicycles for Humanity and Wheelchairs for Kids, as well as a number of projects in Africa, including a sustainable water supply for an orphanage in Zambia. Our Youth Service committee supports Rotary Youth Exchange, National Youth Science Forum, ConocoPhillips Science Experience, Rotary Adventures in Citizenship and Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment. Our Club Service and Membership Committee keep our meetings lively and interesting.
We acknowledge that we meet on the ancestral lands of the Whadjuk Noongar people. We also acknowledge the First Australians as the traditional custodians of the lands and pay our sincere respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
