The Rotary Club of Washington, DC today announced that applications will be accepted for a special Centennial Community Service Grant to mark the 100th anniversary of the club’s Rotary Foundation, which has been supporting non-profit local organizations since the early part of the last century.
In recent years, the Rotary Foundation of Washington DC has been able to provide nearly 40 competitively chosen 501(c)(3) organizations with grants ranging from $500 to $5,000. Typically, three applications each win a major grant of $20,000.
“This year we will reward a single Washington DC non-profit with a larger grant for a significant activity as a statement of pride in our 100 years of service and our commitment to a better future for our community,” said Marilyn Nevy Cruz, this year’s club President.
