Join us

There are many ways you can support our work. Becoming a Rotarian is only one of these.

Becoming a member

How do I join?

It’s easy: Talk to a member or contact us. As with most clubs, there is a nomination process.

What does it cost?

Membership fees are currently $140 for each six months’ period. These funds help to cover the costs of our club, district and Rotary International.

Members are not expected to make personal donations: we serve by doing.

As a member of Upper Northern Beaches Rotary Club, what will be my role?

Rotary is a voluntary organisation whose members are busy people. We all participate within our own levels of availability, skills and expertise. Whilst attendance at our weekly meetings greatly helps members to be informed and to contribute, there is no requirement to attend all meetings. We focus on members being engaged in our projects and activities. And we offer the opportunity to match members’ and supporters’ preferences, skills and availability to the tasks at hand. We encourage members to involve their partners and families in club meetings and all other activities.

What happens after I join?

You will join one of our teams that focuses on a particular project or event. We'll offer you a role that you will find interesting and rewarding.

Our aim is to help you to add another dimension to your life. You, your family, Rotary, the Northern Beaches community and the world will benefit from your participation.

How else can I participate?

Business partnerships

Apart from becoming a club member, there are other ways you can be part of our projects.

As a business leader, you can partner with us in one of our projects. Sponsorships and financial support is always welcome, but your contribution doesn't need to be monetary. Think about how you could bring the resources of your organisation to help make our projects successful.

A wonderful example of Rotary-business partnership is the Christmas Hamper project. Each year, Blackmore's purchases food items to be distributed to needy Australian families at Christmas time. Along with a team from Rotary Club of Manly and a cadre of volunteers from Blackmore's staff, our group packages hundreds of hampers at Blackmore's factory.

We also like to acknowledge the amazing support of Roy and Josephine Mustaca, owners of United Cinemas, who each year make their Grand Theatre at Warriewood available for an evening for our Northern Beaches Spring Concert, our major fundraiser of the year.

Community partnerships

Christmas Carols in the Park

As Rotarians, we take pride in being actively engaged with the community, and in many of our projects we work with local Councils and other community groups to extend our reach and our strength for the good of others.

Our annual Christmas Carols in the Park would not be possible without our partnership with Pittwater Uniting Church. The popular group of musicians and singers who are the core of this great family night are brought together by the church -- most of them are church members. And a large portion of the funding for the event is provided by the church, through the generous donation of an anonymous parishioner.
