The Rotary Club of Manly has been around since 1936 and over that time we've worked on hundreds of projects.
The Fun Run is our major fundraising platform but with your help, we can take that even further.
The first question one should ask is where are the benefits to our organisation by investing in the Rotary Club of Manly Membership Programme.
Well, firstly the Rotary brand you are aligning with is an internationally recognised and a respectfully acknowledged organisation with the purest form of raising funds and distributing these funds where the highest percentage of your dollar goes to the most deserving recipients.
For this to happen you must have a team of like minded people who want to make a profound difference and support this ideal. Amongst this group we have some highly skilled tech members who have created/developed sophisticated social media platforms to allow us to promote our fund raising events, target our beneficiaries and the resulting benefits. Several advantages resulting here where we are attracting a younger demographic, we are leveraging our 5000+ data base so as to offer corporate partners and sponsors a better bang for the buck.
By association your organisation/company can demonstrate your corporate culture and social conscience to potential clients/customers.
One of our most commonly used slogans in Rotary is “Making a Difference”. Let us demonstrate to you how a small investment in our Corporate Partners programme can reward your organisation, enforce your corporate image and really “Make a Difference”.
The Rotary Club of Manly is developing a strategy whereby we can offer a clear example of how to make a contribution towards our projects/programmes and in doing so gain recognition for you Civic Mindedness and Company Promotion through our website, social media platforms and growing 5000+ database.
To gain Corporate Membership we propose an annual membership of $5,000. For this you will work with our team in creating best possible fit for both organisations, for example:
Constant communication with the 5,000+ data base
Brand exposure on our major events
including the Manly Fun Run and Trivia Trail of Manly
Opportunity for staff to “physically roll up the sleeve” and make difference in the community
Promoting your brand alongside a worldwide institution
Your investment gains further credibility by association and being recognised as a Corporate citizen in the Manly community. One example of which is the Rotary Club of Manly's commitment to funding some work associated with the development of proposed Hospice on the old Manly Hospital site.
Because the Rotary name is renowned world wide for its association and partnering with the Bill Gates Foundation in the eradication of Polio, major sanitation projects in third world countries and the cure for Malaria, there is much to be gained by investing in the Rotary brand.
Manly Fun Run & Walk
The Manly Fun Run is into its 13th year and continues to grow in popularity and fund raising potential.
With the help of Corporate Members, Partners and Donors we have designed an event that appeals to all families, all ages, social runners and the very serious athletes. The event mobilises lots of volunteers all wanting to make a difference in our community. It serves to promote the Manly area to its fullest, promotes community awareness and best of all encourages everyone to embrace a healthier lifestyle.
The three categories include:
2km. Fun and games along the Manly promenade for all the family
5km. For the ambitious and fit with the view to the next step up
10km. A true test for the fit and serious runners
These three events combine the famous Manly Beach along with trails that wind through the historic Quarantine Station and the North Head National park. You will also see the military enforcements that were created in our defence during World War 2.
So breath in the sights, sounds and ozone’s of the magic run knowing that your contributions will benefit many charities and you will be “making a difference”.
Manly Trivia Trail
This is a newer incentive by the Rotary Club of Manly to raise funds for our many charities, but unlike our Manly Fund Run with its many logistical challengers that are part of conducting these events, this embraces current technology and potentially a younger demographic…an event for the whole family.
The Trivia Trail has been developed to lead you through the famous Manly precinct, directing you to find QR Codes on our web app, to identify points and places of interest with the help of cryptic comments. It is designed with the encouragement of local and state government to promote the historic Manly area with its many cafes, restaurants, boutiques, gastro pubs, plus the sights and sounds our favourite town and the beautiful Sydney Harbour.
The Trivia Trail also is designed to raise funds, and in doing so support and promote our generous Corporate Members, Donors and Partners. We believe the Trivia Trail will fulfil all these objectives, give us exposure to a new market, but most importantly promote the Rotary brand, its opportunities and rewards for those civic minded folks.

Fun and Rewarding!
"Finding local young people for Rotary sponsored scholarships is both fun and rewarding. It is an investment in the future of Manly. And doing it as a team makes it even better."
Community & Friendship
"I originally joined Rotary out of a sense of giving back to the community after volunteering for many years in my kids activities. Now I appreciate a degree of community and friendship with the friends I have made through an active involvement with Rotary."
"Four years ago I felt the need to offer something to the community and people who needed support. I was so warmly welcomed by Manly Rotary Club members that I decided to join immediately. Since that time I have have been involved in numerous projects to help our community and travelled to Kenya as a volunteer at an Orphanage that had been founded by a lady school teacher Rotarian in Queensland. What a great experience it has been over the last four years! "
"The Rotary Manly Fun Run & Walk is a community event that I have enjoyed as a participant for a number of years. I wanted to give back and so I joined the Rotary Club to be part of the team making this great community event happen. (We have a fabulous vision for the future of this run!) I enjoy that as a Club we focus on raising funds for our local community but we also support excellent international projects as well.
Get involved - You’ll be glad you did!"
"Although I have been a Rotarian for over 30 years I am still amazed by the commitment of my fellow Manly Rotarians to helping those in our community in need"
