Twice a year, the Green Bay West Rotary Club Foundation awards grants to local non-profits to assist them in fulfilling their missions of service to our community. Grants range from $250 to $1000 and priority is given to smaller non-profits and specific projects as opposed to general funding requests.
Grants are awarded twice a year, in September and March.
Our September recipients are: -The Salvation Army for funding to support volunteer meals and snacks during their Coats For Kids and Toys For Tots programs; -The Brain Center for the purchase of technology which will support its Coaching Program; -Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Green Bay to support a new small group mentoring initiative.
Recent past recipients include the East High School Food Pantry, Bay Lakes Council Boy Scouts of America, etc. etc.
Non-profit organizations interested in applying for funding should contact Foundation Committee Chair Bruce Deadman at email@example.com.
Service Above Self is the principal motto of Rotary because it best conveys the philosophy of unselfish volunteer service. Green Bay West Rotary Club recognizes students from 5 area high schools throughout the school year who live this motto out. These students are inspirational and give back to our community in amazingly meaningful ways. At the end of the year we randomly drew the name of 1 student from each school to award their non-profit of choice $200. We are excited the following students were able to continue their 'Service Above Self' with the following donations: Eric Sperduto - Pulaski Pace, Amelia Gibbons - Adaptive Program Green Bay Southwest High School, Viggo Sorbo, Ashwaubenon High School, Convoy of Hope, Cara Wreen, Bay Port High School STEM2girls Inc., Samara Brown, West High School, Pauls Pantry. Best to each of you post-high school! One Profits Most Who Serves Best!
