“ We make a living by what we get, but make a life by what we give.”
Over the past 5 years between 10 and 12 grants, of on average $2000 per person, have been made each year.
Trustees are looking for people that may currently be or who will in the future make a positive contribution to our community in some tangible way. Trustees are also looking to understand how the recipient will benefit from each grant that is made and to understand if the benefit is a wider community one or purely to the individual. All such benefits are considered.
Applicants will be notified of results by September 15th and grants are presented at the Johnsonville Rotary Club in early October.
"I would like to say a huge thanks you to the Johnsonville Youth Grants Trust or your generous support. I have gained so much, not only a wealth of Knowledge but also a greater independence and confidence that will aid me going forth to university and the years beyond. It has truly changed my world perspective and given me a focus for my future that I would never have gained otherwise for which I am eternally grateful. ” - My sincere thanks, Charlotte
