The Rotary Foundation provides matching grants every year for a service project.  For the 2017 - 2018 year, 26 projects were approved for funding.  These include $554 to the Ashland Rotary club, to purchase and install seating / picnic table near the electric car charging station by the City Park.  Also approved are $1,500 for the Beatrice Rotary club to provide materials and assist in building an outdoor classroom for the Beatrice Community Preschool, and $1,500 for the Bellevue Papillion Rotary to support the Magdalene House for women experiencing violence, prostitution and addiction, to maintain the house and purchase items for the residents.  A full list of projects that received grants in our Rotary district (Eastern Nebraska and Western Iowa) can be found here.
If you have idea for a project that the Omaha West Rotary club can support, please contact us!  Project proposals need to be developed in the fall and early winter, then go through an approval process in the spring.  Funding is finalized in late May for the upcoming year.
