Each year the Rotary Club of Menlo Park Foundation Gifts Committee accepts grant applications from local 501(c)(3) organizations. In previous years the Foundation has granted about $25,000 in total to qualifying organizations. The application process is now open for 2020. The deadline for applications is March 13, 2020, and decisions will be made by April 13, 2020.

Each year the Committee focuses on a specific category for funding. This year the category is: Programs Serving Youth Affected by Homelessness and Food Insecurity. Funding will be considered for project proposals submitted by nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations serving Menlo Park, East Palo Alto and adjacent unincorporated areas.

The new library was built by a local Eagle Scout candidate. This young man did an outstanding job planning, constructing and installing this beautiful new garden feature. Here are some photos from the event:
