The City Manager is requesting City Council to ratify a donation to the Rotary Club for their Hops and Vine Charity Fund raising event.
This request is needed at this time to assist the Rotary Club in raising matching funds for their charity fund raising efforts for the local community to provide scholarships to local students.
1) The Rotary Club is a non-profit organization providing scholarship opportunities for students in our community.
2) The Rotary Club routinely provides volunteers to assist with community events throughout the year.
3) The City Manager approved a $500.00 grant to the Rotary Club based upon the request being consistent with the criteria of the City Matching Grant Program.
The City's Volunteer Matching Funds Grant can be utilized since the Rotary Club serves DeBary residents, the Rotary Club utilizes volunteers to help carry out their mission, and the City's Matching Funds requirement is easily satisfied. These grants are limited to $500.00.
It is recommended that the City Council ratify the City Manager approval of a $500.00 matching donation to the Rotary Club for assistance in their fund raising efforts to provide scholarship opportunities to students in the local community.
