Gippsland Rotary Centenary House is a community owned facility that relies on the support of charities, local community groups and individuals. All donations are tax deductible.
Plaques around Centenary House acknowledge the support and we encourage all guests and visitors to view these while in the facility.
We are extremely grateful for all the support we receive, including from the following groups/individuals.
The Department of Transport and Regional Services supported Stage 1 with a grant of $400,000.00 in 2005.
The Department of Health and Ageing provided a grant for Stage 2 of $1.5 million through the Health and Hospitals Fund for Regional Cancer Centres in 2011.
The Victorian Government provided a grant of $500,000.00 for Stage 1 in 2005 and a grant of $50,000.00 for the landscaping of Stage 2 in 2011.
The Latrobe City Council purchased the land on Valley Drive and Gippsland Rotary Centenary House leases the property for peppercorn rent. The Council has also been very supportive by waiving fees for permits.
The Gittins Motor Group supported Centenary House with the provision of vehicle 2006 to 2018. From 2006 to 2009 they sponsored the provision of a car through the Honda Foundation and from 2009 – 2018 Valley Ford provided a station wagon. They also assisted with servicing and insurance of the vehicle. In 2018 David Gittins sold the business and arranged for transfer of the ownership of the station wagon to Gippsland Rotary Centenary House.
J Smith Motors
In 2018 J Smith Motors in Morwell assisted with the transfer of the Ford station wagon to GRCH. J Smith Motors has now begun donating the servicing and maintenance of the vehicle.
Image Direct has provided donation in kind with the initial upgrade of the Centenary House website.
