There is also a separate program, involving a single grant of up to $5,000 that may be augmented by a 50% match from Rotary District 6380. This grant must be for something involving participation of Rotary volunteers. In July 2019, a grant of $5,000 with the possibility of a 50% match from Rotary District 6380 will be made to the Michigan Foster Care Closet for their back-to-school event. We look forward to working with them later this summer on this project.
