The Rotary Club of Washington, D.C.’s held its Second Annual Duck Race on May 6. Despite a rainy day, the club is able to award more than $23,000 in local and international nonprofit grants as a result of the race!
Despite a miserable weather day, our 2017 D.C. Duck Race was a success! Thank you, D.C. Rotary Club members!

Duck Race grants are awarded to nonprofits for projects that enhance the health, education or welfare of youth. Our Community Service Grant Committee (CSG) recommends to the Club Board which local nonprofits should receive grant funds.  (In this year’s CSG application, prospective grantees were asked how they might use a Duck Race grant to further their programs that benefit youth.)  Our International Service Committee (ISC) recommends to the Club Board which international nonprofits and causes should receive funds.
Thank your family, friends, colleagues and other supporters for making this year’s Duck Race such a success! See you in 2018 on the river!
