2019-20 was the first full year of our existence.    The piechart on the left highlights the total incomes and expenditures/allocations of the Club during the course of this year.  It does not include the annual membership dues, which were almost entirely a pass-through.  We received $37,750 in contributions from Rotary, (the large section in gold) which includes the Globat Grant, the District Grant, the COVID-19 Grant.  The Club itself raised $14,450 for the various projects it carried out including the Club's contribution for the Global and District Grants (the section in green)  the orange slice represents the $2,500 that members donated to The Rotary Foundation.
