Grants Seminar, Sat Oct 19, VIA WEBINAR
2019/20 Grants Seminar – October 19
This year the Grant Seminar will be offered as a WEBINAR ONLY on October 19. Currently, 35 people are registered and eligible for grant funds.
Each club is required by The Rotary Foundation to have at least one member attend in order to receive grants.
We have decided to go this route in order to make it easier for people to attend which will in turn increase attendance.
Grants are a huge tool in Rotary toolbox for doing good so understanding what is available and how to access it is vital.

Register in advance for this meeting: 

IMPORTANT: After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

If you have already registered for the Grant Seminar on ClubRunner, you MUST REGISTER IN ZOOM as noted above.
