Toledo Rotary Club Foundation Awards $10,000 Grant

Your Toledo Rotary Club Foundation recently awarded the Girl Scouts of Western Ohio a grant in the amount of $10,000. The funds were used for their community outreach program in Toledo to enable thousands of local girls to participate in Girl Scouting.

The Toledo Rotary Club Foundation Youth Service Committee members received the request, participated in the vetting process and made the decision to recommend grant approval to our Club Board and Foundation Trustees. It is due to the countless Toledo Rotarians who give unselfishly, which enables us to provide these grants. Thank you to everyone who continues to support our Toledo Rotary Club Foundation, so we can continue to aid in supporting the needs of our community!

The purpose of the school-based community outreach program is to engage girls from underserved backgrounds in Girl Scout programming during the school day and in the summer. While participating, girls grow as leaders while learning about diverse subjects that range from conflict resolution to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Thanks to support from local foundations and corporations, Girl Scouts of Western Ohio is able to offer the community outreach program to over 2,000 Toledo girls every year.
