This project enables the club to finance worthwhile local and overseas projects, and has done so since 1974.

South Australian Police Officer of the Year Award
This annual award seeks to highlight the service provided to our community by the South Australia Police and recognises outstanding acts of courtesy, courage, kindness, understanding, compassion and devotion to duty by any member of SAPOL. Each year's winner is chosen by the club from nominations received from individuals and groups in the community. This prestigious award is presented at a public ceremony held in September during the Royal Agricultural Show at the Showgrounds in Wayville, Adelaide.

Carols at the Rotunda
Each year in early evening on a Sunday in mid-December, at the Unley Soldier’s Memorial Gardens, we stage a Christmas Carols event in partnership with the Unley City Concert Band and Unley City Council. We attract great crowds of families and individuals, mainly drawn from the local community . . . an evening to remember.

Over the last decade the club has made significant commitments to helping the poorest of the poor. In India we have helped convert rocky unusable acres into arable land. For Sri Lanka we have financed medical equipment. For East Timor we have collected and shipped much needed school and medical supplies. In Peru a multifaceted program to address poor access to medical care, malnutrition, lack of clean water and limited schooling.  And we have supported the outstanding Rotary International program to rid the world of polio.

Our club’s latest project is for the Dalousu Community, Langa0langa Lagoon, Maliata Province - Solomons Island to provide infrastructure for clean water and sanitation, education of health workers and construction of raised garden beds and chicken coops to address malnutrition issues.
