What is Rotary Local?

The Rotary LOCAL Program helps educators in the Tucson area by providing items and services to be used in learning. In many cases, our network of local business partners provides the necessary resources to help achieve project goals. If you're a business leader who wants to strengthen community through education, consider partnering with Rotary LOCAL.

If you're an educator, tell us what you need. We believe that you can identify your needs better than we can.  Be creative, and tell us how we can help you build a stronger community through education. But first, take a few minutes and read our guidelines listed below to help you get started.

Most grants are under $600, but for the 2023-2024 School Year, RotaryLOCAL will grant a limited number of PLUS grants to individual schools which can be up to $5,000. Proposals which have a school-wide benefit will be favored in these grants. You can use the same form but be sure to upload detailed documentation on how you plan to spend the money and explain how you will measure success.
