Bendigo's young Rotarians turn to technology to fund new calendar

THE city’s next generation of Rotarians have demonstrated their ability to embrace new technology by electing to crowdfund the 2017 edition of their popular calendars.

For the last two years, the Rotary Club of Bendigo Next Generation has teamed up with Lost Bendigo to produce the calendars, with proceeds going to a variety of local causes.

The successful partnership is continuing for a third year but, in order to reduce waste, the calendars are being crowd funded through Pozible to ensure as little stock as possible is left over.

“Money raised from calendar purchases will this year go back into the local community and local Rotary programs,” a spokesperson said.

In past years, money raised from the venture has gone to organisations such as HALT, Variety and Bendigo Animal Welfare Community. Calendars are available through Pozible or via the Rotary club. The cost per calendar is $10. Go to
