The Rotary Club of Dundee has reached a matched funding agreement with the Nine Incorporared Trades of Dundee to create a £20,000 centenary grants fund for local charitable ventures.

Each organisation is contributing £10,000 to the initiative, part of Dundee Rotary Club’s centenary celebrations which will see a bounty of at least £100,000 being donated to local good causes.

Under the scheme, grants of up to £2000 each will be awarded to the ten charities assessed as making the best cases for the money.

The grants will be presented at a civic reception on May 19, 2021 to formally launch Dundee Rotary Club’s centenary year.

Past President of Dundee Rotary Club, Tim Heilbronn, who recently completed a four-year term as charity convenor for the Nine Trades, expressed his delight that the Trustees of “The Nine” had unanimously agreed to his proposal that the two organisations join forces to mark this milestone in the history of Dundee’s oldest Rotary Club.

The matched-funding agreement would create a fund to help local charities at a time when many are struggling with their fundraising owing to the pandemic.

He said: “We are inviting applications for funding for worthwhile projects, valued at up to £2,000 each, that can make a real difference and meet the shared objectives of the Rotary Club of Dundee and “The Nine”. 

“We are seeking projects that will improve the lives of a group of residents within Dundee, with a particular focus on the prevention or relief of poverty, the advancement of education, or the advancement of health. 

“Projects that also encourage volunteering and the increase of community capacity, or support environmental amenities and/or projects within Dundee will be welcomed.”

A broad range of projects are invited to meet the shared objectives, and to cover communities across Dundee and the immediate surrounding area.

Robert Dunn, fellow Dundee Rotary Past President and chair of the club’s centenary committee, said: “We are delighted to be working on this joint initiative with one of our community partners, the Nine Trades, as part of our ongoing support to the local community, which is central to our Centenary celebrations.”

Iain Murray, Deacon convenor of the Nine Incorporated Trades of Dundee said: “We certainly live in extraordinary times, and it has never been more important to support those around us. 

“We are delighted to be a partner of this great local endeavour, and along with my fellow Trades members, we wish that our joint efforts provide assistance and blessings to those who will benefit from this fund.”
