Donations In Kind (DIK)  is a major Rotary project as part of Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) Program.

In South Australia, the project operates with two Rotary Districts 9500 & 9520 which is known as RAWCS Central Region.
Surplus goods are donated to the project from businesses, organisations and individuals and distributed to needy communities locally, nationally and internationally. These goods include medical, dental and hospital equipment, computers, books, toys and school furniture. These goods are stored on a temporary basis at warehouse facilities at Edinburgh Parks where they are checked and cleaned.

South Australian Rotary clubs and other organisations link with other clubs around the world to identify goods specifically needed in communities. Funds are raised for freight costs to get container loads of these goods to these needy communities. The goods are loaded into shipping containers and delivered to specified recipients at the destination end for dispersal to the needy community.
