The Rotary Club of Doylestown continues its philanthropic commitment to the community by awarding $36,000 in grants to eleven charitable organizations and efforts.
 
Eight of the grantees were selected through Doylestown Rotary's annual RFP process, and three grantees were previously chosen to receive ongoing grants. Each year, Doylestown Rotary holds various fundraising events to raise money to support local nonprofit organizations and capital projects focused on promoting peace, providing addiction education, deterring expressions of hate, and helping families at risk and victims of abuse.

The grants, which are usually presented at Doylestown Rotary's annual Four-Way Test Breakfast, were distributed despite having to postpone this year's event due to the coronavirus. Since 2008, Doylestown Rotary has given over $273,000 back to the community.
 
"The coronavirus brought us many new challenges, but Doylestown Rotary and Rotary District 7430 stay committed to helping fulfill the needs of our community despite the unexpected," said Chris Nardo, immediate past president of Doylestown Rotary. "We will continue to think outside of the box to support our fundraising efforts for the remainder of this year into next under the direction of our new president, Mark Hoffman."
