District 36 Project: Service to Others

District 36 Project:  Service to Others


Provincial RTO/ERO budgets up to $100,000 for Service to Others Grants annually.  Each of our 48 Districts can submit proposals.  A committee then examines each application and allocates funds to those meeting the criteria.  Peterborough District 36 has been quite successful in our applications for the past few years.

A Kid's Guide to Canada

We are pleased to announce that RTO District 36 member Cathy Beach's Canada 150 project called "A Kids Guide to Canada" has received a Service to Others grant of $4000. 

The money will be used to cover the costs of sending information about the project to all school boards across Canada.  A small, but very efficient group of RTO members, stuffed envelopes to get the information out to classrooms across the country. 

For more information about the project, check out the website http://akgtcanada.com. 

If you know of groups or organizations which might qualify for a Service to Others grant, please let us know.
