SRC is officially able to apply for a District Grant for the 2019-20 Rotary Year as a result of Saturday’s Grants Management Seminar in Schenectady.
Rotary requires at least two members of a club to participate in the annual training seminar for their club to become eligible. Becky Raymond and Bill Dowd represented SRC and signed the event-closing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) necessary to complete the process.
The seminar was part of the District 7190 Training Assembly that also included new member orientation, discussion of the District’s draft strategic plan, and other business.
While clubs are restricted to one District grant application per year, they are not prohibited from bundling requests into one request. SRC is hoping to apply for a grant to cover part of its annual youth scholarship awards as well as its ongoing support the Freedom From Fistula Foundation. Specifics of the application will be discussed at the April 18 SRC Board meeting. The deadline for filing applications is Sunday, June 1.
