Community Service Grants

Each year, the Escondido Rotary Foundation awards Community Service Grants of $500 - $2500 to various organizations. Community Service grants are determined through an application and grant process using specific criteria that determine it's impact on Escondido's Youth, Seniors, Military, Disabled or Education communities. The Foundation is able to fund these grants due to the Rotary Club of Escondido’s annual fund raising event, Coeur de Cuisine.
