Annual Club Support

In the 2019-2020 Rotary year, Lincoln Rotary #14 Foundation provided funding support to Club #14 projects and community organizations as follows:

  • $16,000 in support of these Club projects: Rotary Youth Exchange, Miller Math Award, Martin Legacy Fund for polio eradication, International Student Picnic, and a dictionary to every 4th grade student in Lincoln.

  • $24,000 in grant funding to support local organizations such as Girls Inc of Lincoln for college and career prep programming to high-risk students, Rabble Mill dba The Bay, Boys and Girls Clubs, CEDARS Youth Services, Gathering Place, Tabitha Meals on Wheels, and a behavioral/mental health program for LPS elementary students through Lutheran Family Services.

  • $20,000 towards affordable housing in the South of Downtown neighborhood.

  • $16,000 in COVID-19 relief funding plus $3,000 in designated new funds by Rotarians supporting critical needs in our community for those who are facing impacts related to the pandemic.

  • $10,000 for planting trees in the Everett neighborhood.

  • $10,000 in need-based college scholarship funding to four Lincoln students.

  • $17,000 in projects selected by the Club’s World Fellowship and Community Service Committee directed towards our international community including education on sustainable living in Namibia, stocking a pond with fish for a renewable protein food source in Zambia, and medical clinics and water tanks in Kenya.

That's $113,000 in total project and grant funding just this year, a level only made possible by the contributions and support of all Rotarians.
