Frankston Community Raffle

Community Raffle Draw

Community Raffle Draw

Local clubs, schools and other community groups can raise funds by participating in one of our signature projects – the Frankston North Rotary Community Raffle.

We organise the prizes, permits, print the tickets, and oversee the running of the raffle. All participating groups need to do is sell as many tickets as they choose, and receive the net proceeds – normally $1.50 for each $2.00 raffle ticket sold.

Over the last 25 years, over $1.6 million has been raised to assist over 100 clubs, schools and groups throughout our local community. The raffle is supported by the Frankston City Council.

This project was initiated as a MG for the Philippines in partnership with the RC of Dau, Angeles, Philippines intended to be submitted to RI in Rotary year 2012/2013 but due to the condition that:

MG Ineligibility: Projects already undertaken and in progress, existing projects, activities primarily sponsored by a non-Rotary organization, or projects already completed (MG Instructions p.2).

The Frankston North Rotary Board decided to fund the project from Club funds. Also recipients of the technology are the Community Groups listed below:

Frankston Community Groups:

  1. Mahogany Neighbourhood Centre

    Project – Allocate 10 PCs to Mahogany Computer Room. Establish upgraded computer learning environment.  Allow reallocation of funds to upgrade software through the “donortec” program offered by Microsoft.

    Mahogany Neighbourhood Centre is now able to offer training in software up to current software release of Microsoft Operating System and desktop Office Professional to local community and interested groups.

  2. Community Support Frankston

    Project – Allocate 8 PCs to Community Support Frankston. Establish upgraded computer back office – Marketing, Admin, Data Entry, Statistical Analysis, and Policy Development facilities.

    Community Support Frankston is now more effective in running their back office support functions and can more readily focus on the front office needs of the Frankston area. This not for profit community organisation provides assistance to those in need and depends for its success on the ongoing commitment of essentially voluntary staff who go through a thorough selection and training process. The staff focus is to provide assistance where required to the local community.
