Community Project Grants

Voluntary contributions and fund-raising activities allow our club to contribute to the many international projects of the Rotary Foundation and to support our own local projects.

We support worthwhile community causes and promote international understanding and goodwill. Our Service Projects Committee is committed to strengthening the community.  We accept proposals on a twice-yearly cycle: Fall and Spring.
