Project - Service to Others

RTO/ERO proudly operates a grant program for its 48 Districts, providing $100,000 to sponsor local community projects. Through Project – Service to Others (STO), Districts apply for individual projects that support local, national and international programs that often involve children and/or disadvantaged groups, to a maximum of $4,000 per project.

A provincial committee of RTO/ERO assesses the merit of each Project – STO submission according to established criteria, including level of member and District participation in the project.

Examples of types of projects receiving funding include: local heritage and culture projects, special arts and education programs for children, support for initiatives in developing countries, literacy and numeracy programs, and school day care for the children of single teenage mothers.

Our list of previously approved projects is testament to the value and success of Project – STO, as well as a good resource for ideas on the diverse selection of projects that receive funding.
