What about Rotary?
$32,000 in Grants Awarded by Rotary to Local Organizations Serving
the Morgan Hill Community
Earlier this year our annual giving programs awarded $32,000 grants to organizations working to improve the lives of Morgan Hill residents.
Our Response to Covid-19
The Rotary Club of Morgan Hill recently made emergency donations to local organizations that are supporting our community in this time of crisis. These donations went to the Edward Boss Prado Foundation to support the Gate to Gate Food Giveaway, the Morgan Hill Community Foundation to support the Essential Worker Childcare Program, and the YMCA to support the Morgan Hill Senior Center Lunch Program.
The philanthropic budget for the Rotary Club of Morgan Hill comes from fundraising activities as well as donations.
Although we were not able to give out our scholarships in-person this year we did award scholarships to local high school seniors. The recipients from Ann Sobrato High School are Armaan Banwait, Abigail Bendlen, Evelyn Bengel, Danielle Chaisson, Emily Dinh, Crystal Garcia, Katie Meagor, James Pak, Caleb Sweatt, Dylan Tran, and Treston Yetso.

Some of Our Latest Projects
We collaborate with community leaders to work on projects that have a real, lasting impact on people’s lives. Below are just a few of our recent accomplishments. For more about our youth, senior and community projects click here.
Sobrato Welding Room
More than two dozen members of the Rotary Club of Morgan Hill rolled up their sleeves on a bright sunny Saturday on Aug. 11 to clean up and paint a class room at Ann Sobrato Hill School in Morgan Hill as part of the Club's support of a new welding program to be offered by Gavilan College. In addition, to preparing the room for this use, the Rotary club had a white elephant auction that raised funds to equip the new room with welding machines and gear.
Morgan Hill Rotarians bring $1M in medical supplies to Ameca, Mexico
Thanks to efforts from members of the Rotary Club of Morgan Hill, the Mexican community of Ameca this month will receive as much as an estimated $1 million in medical supplies that would otherwise have been destroyed.
The project started a year and a half ago when St. Louise Regional Hospital received “a mountain” of medical supplies from another hospital that was closing, said Rotary member Peter Anderson. The St. Louise materials manager was overwhelmed and contacted the Rotary Club to see if members could find a home for the supplies that they couldn’t use because there’s a “shelf life” for all medical products based mostly on the durability of their packaging.
Honoring High School Seniors
This year was a tough one for graduating seniors as all in-person graduating ceremonies were canceled.
In an effort to recognize their accomplishments the Rotary Club of Morgan Hill decided to honor the Class of 2020 graduating from schools within the boundaries of the Morgan Hill Unified School District
56 banners were purchased and installed in the downtown area.
The Rotary Club of Morgan Hill Endowment is a non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to providing funds to the community at large for benevolent and/or philanthropic causes.
The heart of Rotary is our members, dedicated people who share a passion for community service and friendship.
Rotary members share ideas, make plans, hear from the community, and catch up with friends during club programs that fuel the impact we make.
