The Work of the Providence Rotary Charities Foundation

Funded by the generous donations of Providence Rotarians and corporate sponsors of major club events, the Providence Rotary Charities Foundation supports the club's Childhood Literacy Initiative and awards grants each year to local area nonprofit organizations working in areas that align with the overall goals of Rotary International.

During the 2019-2020 Rotary Year, the Childhood Literacy Initiative provided teaching materials designed to help students at Providence's Harry Kizirian Elementary School who were not reading at grade level improve their proficiency. When the coronavirus pandemic forced all schools to close, the initiative responded with a delivery of books to the homes of over 200 Kindergarten and first grade students.

We'll receive an update from the Foundation's officers on 2021 activities.
