The Rotary Club of Kew was established in June 1967 and has serviced both the local and wider community since that time. It was established with 30 members from the Kew area and today has an active membership of over 40 men and women. In the 50 years of its existence, the Club and its members have been actively involved in supporting the youth of the area with programs such as Youth Exchange and School Debating. It has continually raised funds to provide much needed assistance to local charities in the City of Boroondara as well as International organisations such as the Alola Foundation in East Timor. Over the past few years, some $600,000 dollars have been raised to support these programs through the Club's major fundraising venture, Garden DesignFest. The Club is dedicated to the continuation of the great work of those members who have gone before and is always looking for like minded people to join its ranks.
