Gippsland Rotary Centenary House does not receive any ongoing government funding for operational expenses and so must undertake fundraising activities to ensure the House remains financially viable for day-to-day expenses and future improvements. As a community owned facility we rely heavily on the local businesses, groups and individuals for support.
