Every year, Rotary clubs around the Salem-Keizer area gather together with the goal of distributing a dictionary to every 4th grader in the Salem-Keizer School District. To accomplish this goal, we need your help!
We have an opportunity for a one-to-one matching grant through District 5100. All you have to do is buy one! Or a whole box!
Dictionaries are 2.50/each, $30 for a 1/2 box and $60 for a full box. You can make your donation online by clicking here. Just add the details under the ‘note’ section. E.g. “$60 Box of Dictionaries.”

Do you know of a great nonprofit partner that could benefit from grant dollars to support literacy-related projects? Our club’s Literacy Committee has opened their grant window. From now until January 15, we are accepting applications. Grants range from $500 – $2,500 and support literacy related projects in and around our community.
To apply, click here to review the requirements for the application. Please see Literacy Committee Chair Jenn Columbus if you have additional questions.
Did you see today’s Facebook post about the great work our literacy committee is doing? Several members and volunteers met at the Salem Public Library to to label donated books for distribution at the Marion-Polk Food Share. We are proud to support such an incredible organization!
