Martha explained how the grant program works and that of the 45 clubs in our district only 16 applied and just 15 were awarded grants from a distribution pool of roughly $30,000 … and that the annual contributions by Rotarians to the Rotary Foundation provide some of teh financial support for the grant program. Looking forward to 2019, Martha indicated that Grant requests for this coming year must be submitted between January 15th and May 15th
