The idea for this annual Rotary project was to provide modest grants to teachers to enhance and improve the teaching process. Among other things, faculty members use these grants to secure classroom materials, link curriculum among varying disciplines, purchase supplementary reference books, and fund educational field trips or special lectures.

Co-chairs of the Mini-Grants for Teachers project, Thom Hill and Joe Cina, are delighted to report that with this year’s donations the total contribution level since inception is now over $500,000! The best part is that over three-plus decades Mini-Grants have assisted hundreds of teachers in providing teaching aids for thousands of students!

The members of the Glendora Rotary Club would be grateful that you, too, “found a need to fill!”

The Program

Mini-Grants for Teachers Program – (October-January) For more than 30 years, the Club has been enhancing the educational experiences of K-12 students in the City of Glendora by sponsoring Mini-Grants for Teachers.  The committee kicks off the program at the first club meeting in October. Teachers (usually three) who earned grants from the previous academic year are invited to explain how their grants made a difference in the classroom. The subsequent grants are juried by club members and school district personnel.  Grants are awarded in January at a location to be determined.
