Community Service Grants

Twice a year, the Rotary Club of Aiken rewards Community Service Grants to local non-posits.

The grants are determined using the criteria of maximum good to be accomplished with the award, the broad reach of support, and the significance of improvements in the human condition the funds could provide.
