We are standing up a Rotary project near the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation population in South Dakota. Our District 5610 has partnered with a building owner in Whiteclay, Nebraska (2 miles from Pine Ridge Reservation) to help artists with production and selling of their artwork. The grant will focus on Economic and Community Development, so that they may better support themselves and their families. This Indian Reservation is on the poorest county in the United States.
We have completed the community assessment, and drafted the concept as attached. Please let us know any questions or comments on this proposed Global Grant project. We are looking for and engaging the support of the international Rotary community to help us fund the grant. Any financial commitment would be greatly appreciated.
This project needs to receive some pledges to go to the next level. Please check the "Financing" tab to see the list of current pledges. Once the amount pledged is equal to the project budget, the status of the project will be automatically changed to "Fully Pledged". Click here to pledge support for this project.
DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
