signature project 2020

The Downtown Lincoln Rotary Club #14 was founded in 1910 as the fourteenth Rotary club in the world. The club’s started a foundation in 1997 to make annual grants to qualifying organizations on a yearly basis and to support a major “Signature Project” approximately every ten years.
Rotary #14 celebrated its centennial in 2010 by awarding a $100,000 Signature Project grant to design and build the street side entrance to Elliott School. The grant inspired other giving and helped fulfill the more than $600,000 cost of the overall project.
The next Signature Project grant will celebrate the 110th anniversary of the organization with a grant of $200,000. It is envisioned the investment will inspire other major gifts resulting in a larger and more significant project to be announced in June of 2020.
