Literacy Programs

If you plan for a year, plant a seed.  If for ten years, plant a tree.   If for a hundred years, teach the people.    –Kuan Chung

The primary Rotary District 6460 literacy project is the Literacy Grant Program.  The Literacy Grant money is funded through “Rotary Family Day at the Ballpark.”.  Therefore, clubs selling baseball tickets will have a higher priority for funding. ALL clubs are eligible for funding. Applying for Literacy Grant money does not guarantee approval for funding.
