Doing Good in the World and in our District is made possible by Rotarians Like You!!

Checks were mailed to sixteen clubs in our district totaling $41,298 to use in funding local service projects. With the district funds and the matching funds from clubs more than $82,596 will go into improving our communities. These are district grant awards for the 21-22 grant year and these funds were made possible thanks to contributions by our members to The Rotary Foundation in our District 6580 in 2018-2019.

We congratulate and thank the sixteen clubs receiving the funding for working to make your communities a better place.
