Our Charity Committee is one of our most active committees, meeting monthly to review grant requests. Most recipients receive under $2000, but all together we gave away around $25,000 in the last fiscal year! That's a lot of good work that our Rotary Club of MV has supported! In addition to grants, our weekly speakers receive an honorarium to donate to the charity of their choice.
Last year we were pleased and proud to support:
African Artists Community Development Project, Animal Shelter of MV, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Camp Jabberwoky, Community Suppers, Connect to End Violence, Elder SErvices of Cape Cod and The Islands, ELL Lunch Program, Federated Church, Felix Neck preschool, Friends of the Edgartown Library, FUEL, Fuel assistance program, Good Shepherd, Habitat for Humanity, Harbor Homes, Hospice of MV, IBFCA, Institute for Nonprofit Practice, Island Blue Pages, Island Food Pantry, Island Grown Initiative, Island Housing Trust, Misty Meadoows, MV Crop Walk, MV Mediation Program, MV Youth Task Force, MVCS, NE Classic Tour De Cure, Plastic Free MV, Project Vine, Rhythm of Life, Ronald McDonald House, Sail MV, Song Exchange Project, The Dictionary Project, Tisbury Firefighters, UMC Clothes to Go, Vineyard Conservation Society, VMS
