Wishing Well

The Rotary Club of Mandurah invites you and your friends to throw your spare change into the Christmas Wishing Well in the Port Mandurah canals from the beginning of December until mid January. The money is collected nightly for local charities and community groups.

Watch the Today Tonight video about the Mandurah Rotary Wishing Well.

Local community groups are encouraged to apply for funding between 1st February and 31st March.

We fund stand-alone projects that:

  • Benefit people in the Mandurah area, especially the under-resourced.
  • Are delivered by local not-for-profit groups.
  • Accomplish specific goals and objectives.

We do not fund:

  • Political, religious or private enterprise.

The key dates for this process are:

  • 1st February: Applications open.
  • 31st March: Closing date for applications.
  • Mid-April: Applicants notified of Board’s decision.
  • 1st May - 31st December: Project duration. (Can be extended in exceptional circumstances.)

We accept one proposal per group per year. Grants of between $500 and $2000 may be requested.
If your project needs part-funding from another source, this funding needs to be confirmed before applying to Rotary.
