Greater Boise Rotary Foundation Grants $20,000 to Ada County Organizations
Greater Boise Rotary Foundation (GBRF) announced Grants totaling $20,000 to eight Ada County Nonprofit organizations.  These recipients represent services to the community including, housing, home furnishings, food, baby services, beds and bedding, counseling, and education.  With the current COVID-9 crisis GBRF believes that by giving to these nonprofits, we are helping the most people in need, with the funds available.  Together, Rotarians see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
The eight funded organizations are: 
C.A.T.C.H. - Builds Collaborative partnerships and increases public understanding to end homelessness.  
Learning Lab - Offers a family literacy program
Salvation Army - Provide crisis aid to help struggling individuals and families with their basic needs
City Light - Offers emergency shelter, a one-year recovery program, a transitional housing program and a special veteran’s program for women.
WCA - Provides shelter and supportive services to individuals impacted by domestic violence and/or sexual assault. 
Meridian Food Bank - Responds to the growing number of people having difficulty keeping food on their tables. 
Sleep in Heavenly Peace - Builds bunk beds for families that cannot afford beds for their children.
Idaho Diaper Bank - Organizes diaper drives, purchases diapers in bulk, and distributes diapers to nonprofit partners assisting families and babies most in need.
As people of action, Rotary members want to find ways to respond to COVID-19 and to help people affected by it.  These grants represent one way in which Ada County Rotary members are helping our community.  The funds are unrestricted and the organizations may use the funds to help care for and protect people in our communities in the best way the organization sees as most important to the people they serve.
