The Rotary Club of Capitol Hill and Capitol Hill Village appreciate your support.

The Rotary Club of Capitol Hill Foundation is the financial giving arm of the Rotary Club of Capitol Hill.  Projects that it supports include:

- Dictionary Project: The goal of this program is to assist all students in becoming good writers, active readers, creative thinkers, and resourceful learners by providing them with their own personal dictionary. The dictionaries are a gift to each student to use at school and at home for years to come. Each year, the Rotary Club of Capitol Hill distributes dictionaries to every 3rd grade student in Capitol Hill.

          - Gallaudet University Endowed Scholarship: Gallaudet University is the world leader in liberal education and career development for deaf and hard of hearing students. The      University enjoys an international reputation for its outstanding programs and for the quality of the research it conducts on the history, language, culture, and other topics related to deaf people. The Rotary Club of Capitol Hill contributes annual to the Rotary District 7620 Endowed Scholarship at Gallaudet. Additionally, the Rotary Club of Capitol Hill and students at Gallaudet work together on community fundraisers and service projects.

          - EndPolioNow: After 25 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease, but a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions. The Rotary Club of Capitol Hill is committed to eradication and will support the goals of Rotary International with an annual donation to EndPolioNow until the day that the world is Polio-free.
