RIFGC Community Project Award
Do you have a community project that you would like to start and feel that you are unable to do so due to lack of funds? The RIFGC, in an effort to “give-back” to the clubs, has $2000.00 available to help with these projects. Every year at the Annual Luncheon we will give cash awards to the selected clubs to help them accomplish their goal. This award will not be judged!
Please send your application to President, Deb Ort at email@example.com
The applications will be placed in a hat and drawn at the Annual Meeting.
1. Please give a brief description of the project you would like to start.
2. How much money do you think you would need to accomplish your project?
3. What benefit would this project be to the community?
4. How many club members will be involved?
5. How long do you think it will take to complete the project?
6. Who will maintain the project (if needed) upon completion?
