Charity and Community at the Ranelagh Club


The Ranelagh Club has been a focal point of the Mount Eliza Community for nearly 90 years. Over this time the Club has been and is involved with a number of Charitable and Community based organisations.


To help further support our local community the Ranelagh Charitable Policy has been released and can be see here Ranelagh Club Charity Policy and on the Policy and Consultation page.


Each year we call for nominations for suitable charities from our Members for us to align with.
A total of five charities will be selected based on the policy and its criteria.


The five charities for 2015-2016 have been decided upon by committee and are listed below. If you wish to nominate a charity for the 2016-2017 Financial year - please not the process to do so.



Nominated Charities 2015-2016


The Dolphin Research Institute



The Dolphin Research Institute is based at Hastings, on the shore of Western Port in Victoria, Australia. DRI's efforts are focussed in the south-eastern region of Australia. 

DRI was seeded in the late 80's by people who were concerned about our local dolphins and what we were doing to our marine environment. We have grown in to a well-managed and sustainable not-for-profit conservation organisation. The Institute is self-funded from the community, the corporate sector and government grants. Today, we are able to employ biologists and educators to work with our volunteers and students on structured and outcome-driven projects at our Marine Conservation Centre . Our original concerns and passions remain, as do our community roots.
