Civic Entrepreneurship Grants 2016-2017

These organizations were approved to receive grants ranging between $1,000 and $3,000.

Pack Away Hunger 
To celebrate our Club’s signature service project, Indy Do Day, our entire club helped pack 11,664 meals during a Tuesday Rotary meeting.  These meals were distributed to food banks in Indianapolis and around the world.

MSD of Lawrence Township 
This funding went toward the purchase of underwear for young children that may have accidents at school.  Having this resource on site reduces missed class time and family/class disruptions.  Volunteers helped package and organize the supply.

Tindley Prep Families 
A new member class decided to adopt and shop for two families at Christmas.  From a child’s first bicycle to a much needed clothing, the gifts were a blessing to the families that received them.

Dove Recovery House 
Dove Recovery House moved into a new facility in 2016 and increased their capacity to serve women undergoing drug treatment.  With this funding, they purchased bedding for almost 20 new beds!

IPS School #15 
What do you want to be when you grow up? Kids can’t be what they can’t see, so our new member class provided a Professional Show and Tell to feature their professions.  They capped off the experience with a luncheon and etiquette class.

Circle City Prepatory Charter School 
A new charter school located in a community of need received funding to help attract and support kids and families as they got ready to go back to school with a Back to School bash! Rotarians visited and staffed the bash providing logistics and support to attendees.

Indianapolis Children’s Choir 
Rotarians volunteered to help clean out the music closets located at the Indianapolis Children’s Choir and this grant helped support the purchase of new sheet music so more students can learn and grow through music.

Veteran’s Industries and Arts 
The Cool Bus is a mobile food pantry, delivering fresh fruits and veggies to food desserts around the City. This grant helped pay for refrigeration and shelving to get the bus on the road to helping feed the needy, and Rotarians gathered to help with the install of the items.
