The Rotary Bruce Rock Swim – How We’re Fundraising

The Swim is on Soon!

The Rotary Bruce Rock Swim is less than three weeks away, and we’re busily fundraising for the event!

Proceeds from the Swim will go to Vital Wheatbelt Literacy Projects

The Swim proceeds will go to vital literacy development programs at Bruce Rock District High School, and earn matching literacy grants for Narembeen and Quairading District High Schools.

We have three important fundraising channels for the 2017 Swim.

Our Rotary Club Members are Leading the Way with Donations!

Our Rotary Club parks cars at the Perth Makers Market to raise funds for charitable and community projects across Western Australia and internationally.   The members have decided to dedicate a portion of these funds to top up the generous contribution made to Bruce Rock Swim fundraising by our charity, The Rotary Foundation. These member-generated funds will flow to all three schools participating in the Swim.

Offline Fundraising is Underway!

You may have seen the swim posters and associated offline sponsorship forms being used by supporters of each participating school. These sponsorship forms are school-specific and funds raised via a particular form will go to the credit of the school named on that form.

Copies of the school sponsorship forms are available for download from:
1.  Sponsorship Form for Bruce Rock DHS swimmers
2.  Sponsorship form for Narembeen DHS swimmers
3.  Sponsorship form for Quairading DHS swimmers

Our Online Fundraising via is Flying!

In addition to these forms, we’re operating a dedicated account on to give the Swim the best possible chance to connect with potential supporters anywhere in the world. Chuffed is a very convenient and quick way to contribute, with special digital “thank you” items to those who donate more than $10.

The great news so far is  that our account on has received donations of more than $300 in support of the Swim and associated literacy projects.
