2020 Community Service Grant Program -      Call for Letters of Intent

The Community Service Committee (CSC) of the Evanston Lighthouse Rotary Club announces a call for Letters of Intent for the 2020 Community Service Grant Process.
Each year the CSC accepts letters of intent from non-profit organizations serving Evanston residents for specific programs in the amount of $500 to $3,000.
The CSC seeks to fund programs that will improve and enhance the quality of life for Evanston school-aged children and youth in the areas of health, safety and the environment.  Funding may improve access to current programs (especially for underserved populations); provide for creative new initiatives; or enhance current programs.  We encourage partnerships.
A brief description of your non-profit organization including the organization's Mission Statement and its length of existence.
In 500 words or less, please describe the project/program for which you are seeking funding.  Include the total project/program cost, a demographic description of the project/program recipients being served; an estimate of the projected number of recipients; a description of the grant's impact upon this program/project and a brief plan for sustainability of the project beyond the funding period if the project is to continue.
Letters of intent are due to committee chair Susan Prout at swprout@comcast.net no later than March 31, 2020.
Organizations will be notified by April 19, 2020 as to whether or not they have been accepted into the grants process.
Organizations being considered for a grant will be contacted by a member of the committee during the week of April 19th to schedule a site visit and interview.
Organizations will be notified as to whether or not they are to be awarded a grant during the week of May 17 and if so, how much.
Grant checks will be presented at the June 2nd 7:15 a.m. Evanston Lighthouse Rotary Club meeting.
Applicants do not have to fill out a formal application.  The Letter of Intent should give basic information about the project and all other information will be collected during the site visit/interview.
Thank you for your interest in the Evanston Lighthouse Rotary Club Community Service Grant program!

Pathways to Peace

Rotary International and Harris Public Policy are proud to present the final event in a three part series of discussions focusing on peace and conflict.  Join us for "Sustaining the Peace" and hear from the next generation of peace builders who are working for communities around the world to ensure that today's challenges-from a record migrant population to increasing unrest with global institutions of governance-do not reverse the hard-won gains of the last century. Rotary Peace fellows and the first cohort of scholars from UChicago's Pearson Institute for the Study and Resolution of Global Conflict will share their stories. This presentation will take place at Rotary International on April 10, 2018 from 6:00-7:30 PM. A reception will follow.
