Ashley Adams, ECBR Literacy Chair, presented John Albrecht with a grant from Blackbaud through its Reward Your Passion Grant program in the amount of $500 for the purchase of books for the Rotary Club’s literacy program with Mary Ford Elementary. Each week, our club asks the meeting speaker to sign a book that we donate to the school’s library. Blackbaud “Reward Your Passion” Grant: With 25,000 nonprofit customers, it’s difficult for us to choose one organization over another. This is why we put our employees at the center for our philanthropy with initiatives like Reward Your Passion grants. Through Reward Your Passion, employees apply for grants on behalf of organizations where they volunteer. Grants are awarded through a competitive process and given in honor of the employee’s service and commitment to the organization.Up to 20 grants are awarded each quarter. Individual grants are 500 and team grants are 1,000, both are given in the employee’s home currency (USD, Pounds Stirling, Euros, AUSD, etc).
