Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Burley Idaho

Total Budget: $4,928

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: General

Summary: Purchase backpacks and fill with grade appropriate school supplies to be provided to underprivileged children within the local school district.


The Burley Rotary Club will obtain class lists and provide backpacks with supplies to approx. 80 students to be distributed by the school based upon need. Each backpack with supplies costs $50-60. We include a post card with club information and the 4 way test in each backpack. Club members deliver the stuffed back packs to the local schools. The principal of each school distributes the back packs to needy students based upon information available such as school lunch data. We use generic popular back packs so students receiving the backpacks are not readily apparent to their classmates.

Your spending plan should provide a vendor's estimate of the cost of a backback & itemized list of supplies & each of their cost so that you have a more accurate estimate of what each one will cost. It's not advisable for a club to apply in tier 3 if it's unsure of its ability to fund the entire budget should the DDF awarded be less than what's requested. IOW, tier 3 grants cannot be scaled back, & the club is expected to make up the difference should we not have enough DDF to fund all you've requested. You may want to consider applying in tier 2 where you're assured of getting the money you're requesting. Email Ines or Marianne if you have questions.

TRF approved the district block grant on 7/9/19. The district received more requests for DDF than money available requiring that cuts be made in funding. Your project is reduced to $2218 of DDF. Clubs in tier 3 are expected to make up the difference in the project financing. We have cancelled the signature process and adjusted the financing to reflect this. To confirm your intention of continuing with the project, please send it again for signatures on the admin side of the description tab. Questions? Need help? Contact District Grants Chair Ines Crespo, 208 320-8494.
