A member of the Rotary Club of Arlington, Chris McMurrough, designed a fundraiser for the Club to sell "#supportpeace" yard signs at $20 each and for all proceeds to be donated to the Rotary Foundation Disaster Relief Fund in support of Ukrainian relief efforts. The requested $1000 would cover printing/production of the yard signs and allow 100% of raised funds to be given to the Disaster Relief Fund. In addition to Club members buying/selling yard signs, the Club is also promoting bulk sales to other clubs in the District.
Addendum to Project Description (added after the project was signed)
After learning that our proposed grant was not eligible because it involves fundraising, the Rotary Club of Arlington changed this grant to use for supporting RYLA scholarships for local high school students. We paid a total of $1700 for four students to which our $1,000 was applied.
