Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
The main objective of Rotary is service – in the community in the workplace, and throughout the world. Rotarians develop community service projects that address many of today’s most critical issues, such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and violence.
The B-CC Rotary Club Foundation awards grants to a wide array of local non-profits and Rotary projects. The foundation is completely volunteer driven, so that 100% of the money it raises goes to the charitable causes it supports.
Some of the past grant recipients of the B-CC Rotary Club foundation include:
- Suburban Hospital
- St. Luke’s House
- Greentree Shelter
- Montgomery Hospice
- B-CC Rescue Squad
- Imagination Stage/BAPA
- Bethesda Cares
