Rotary Club of Richmond Foundation Grant
In 2017 a newly implemented grant program was announced to award a yearly single grant of $25,000 from the Rotary Club of Richmond Foundation, a component fund of The Community Foundation. Applications for the grant will be announced during the Club's traditional fall granting period at meetings and through our club website - see http://www.rotaryclubofrichmond.org/
Our first grant program received 20 applications. The review committee of Bob Hicks, Bernie Meyer, Toddy Immmel, Pam Embrey, Kenny Janes, John Patton and Isabelle Hilliard selected Metropolitan Richmond Habitat for Humanity as the recipient of our $25,000 grant.
Habitat for Humanity's goal, with the help of the Rotary Club of Richmond, is to rehabilitate a home for low income Habitat for Humanity home owner applicants by providing affordable home ownership. In addition, this program has a large impact on the stability and economic development of the neighborhood.
This grant was awarded to Habitat for Humanity in March of 2018, in addition our $100,000 plus multi year centennial grant to Parternership for the Future, received its final grant in late spring of 2018.
