Stacks Image 3148
Apply before April 30, 2020

If you are involved in a community project that you feel may qualify to apply for a Project–Service to Others (PSTO) grant, we strongly encourage you to contact a member of the District Executive for guidance.

RTO/ERO proudly operates a grant program for its 51 districts, providing $100,000 to sponsor local com-munity projects through Project–Service to Others. Districts apply for individual projects that support local, national and international programs that often involve children and/or disadvantaged groups, to a maximum of $4,000 per project.

Please submit your project before April 30, 2020 to Yvonne Hough at: hough@rogers.com

Only one approved PSTO project will be submitted by each district to the provincial committee. The Provincial PSTO Committee will examine all submitted projects and a decision will be made in September, 2020.

For further details, visit the RTO/ERO provincial website (opens in new tab ore window).
