West Salem Rotary offers teachers in West Salem the opportunity to receive a $500 grant toward a special project or program that isn’t usually covered by their general fund.
The application must clearly demonstrate how the project will enhance the education of the students by promoting and emphasizing one of the four values listed:
SERVICE ABOVE SELF… Engaging in meaningful community or global service that enhances the lives of other people.
HIGH ETHICAL STANDARDS… in business and in the community.
THE ENHANCEMENT OF INTERNATIONAL UNDERSTANDING… of all cultures and people.
EDUCATION… as a pathway to success which will result in further service.
