Markets Income Distribution

All funds raised by the Townsville Rotary Markets at Willows Sunday Markets, Strand night markets and Riverway Moonlight Markets and Cotters market are used for local projects in our community, national and international projects. Decision on funding for various projects is made by one of the Townsville Rotary clubs. 
In the 2016 -17 financial year the 12 Rotary clubs (members of Townsville Rotary Markets) contributed and donated $521.697 to various Not-For-Profit organisations and charities. Of the total expenditure 75% (388,959) was spent locally in the Townsville region. The clubs raised $265,689 from the four markets and the rest came from other Rotary fund raising activities.
