The Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island is pleased to announce that a total of 27 grants totaling $152,654 will be awarded to 26 nonprofit organizations on Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap County.

The funds used to make these grants come largely from the enormous generosity of the community during the club’s yearly Rotary Auction & Rummage Sale. The club takes its stewardship responsibilities seriously and strives to manage funds in an effective, appropriate, and timely manner. For each grant request, club members review carefully (with the applicant) the expected impact on the organization and the benefits to the community.
 
“We had a most successful Auction and Rummage sale last June and it’s great to be able to give this much back to our community,” said Community Grants Chair Angela Tinker. “It is always difficult to select our grant recipients from the long list of worthy applicants. This year 27 grants were awarded to wonderful nonprofits.”
 
In the last 10 years, the Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island has awarded 243 Community Grants totaling over $1,163,000 to 93 local nonprofit organizations.
