The Charitable Projects Lane


Rotary's Community Service Lane (aka Charitable Lane) is one of the key lanes of service in Rotary.  Rotary International is renowned not only for its global services, but for working at the community level.  The Rotary Club of Lexington Park honors that tradition.

The Charity Research Committee is the arm of the Club that reviews applications submitted by local charitable organizations who apply for grants and donations from our Foundation.   For calendar year 2022, the Charity Research Committee is tasked with focusing on three areas of need in St. Mary's County:

  1. Youth Mental Health
  2. Homelessness & Home Insecurity
  3. Nutritional Insecurity

During the fiscal year that runs from 1-January to 31-December, grants and donations will be awarded to qualified local organizations whos needs align with these priorities.
