The Story

At the Gresham Rotary, we focus on the youth in our community.  We send kids to summer camp whose parents can't get them there. we give dictionaries to first graders, sometimes their first book ever.  Our biggest dollar event each year is scholarships.  Scholarships for high school seniors starting college at Mt. Hood Community College.

Each year we hold several fund-raising events.  In the fall is the annual "Steak Fry".  If you live in the Gresham area, we would love to have you attend this annual event.  Look for Gresham Rotary on FaceBook and we'll hook you up for a steak.  But what about those who can't come?  Will you help us? 

This is a modest goal.  With $6,000.00 more, we can fund scholarships for a second student at each of the four area high schools we serve. This year, we could only give one per school.  There are so many more students in need.

The stories of these students are compelling.  One of our recipients this year had been kicked out of dad's house by his new girlfriend, couch surfed with friends until turning 18, and had to get a job to get an apartment.  In spite of it all, somehow this young person kept top grades and the ambition for a better life.  But we also had to say "no" to a student who's story was just as compelling, who has never been given permission to dream of a bright future.  Both were deserving of help, but there was not enough money. 

Please make your donation now.  Help us reach our goal.
