The Rotary Club of Aspen is committed to find ways to improve the quality of life for people in our community and to serve the public interest.  One of the six areas of Rotary's focus is economic and community development.  In this time of such great community need, led by its non-profit foundation, a recent community grants program aimed to help local nonprofit organizations who serve the needs of health and human services and youth groups is complete. After a thorough application process, the Rotary Club of Aspen Foundation will be distributing a total of $15,000 to seven local organizations.  These funds will help local non-profit organizations through the difficult times caused by the recent COVID-19 pandemic that has economically impacted so many businesses.
