Financial Support to the Community

Our aim has been to provide assistance to smaller organizations in the local community who may not have access to professional fundraising resources.

As you can imagine, all our Club activities including processing grant applications are suspended indefinitely as we adjust to the realities of the Covid-19 world.

We will update the website when we are back in operations.

The Board approved the following grants for Fall 2019:
