School Care Project 2021- Feeding Local Projects

 

Ramsgate RSL are very excited to see the relaunch of our successful School grant program School Care Project’,  that was launched in 2019 and then postponed in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions and capacity challenges.

What is it?
Ramsgate RSL’s School Care Project is our community School Grant program.

How does it work?

Ramsgate RSL will donate $10,000 between three schools in our local community to support projects that fall under our CARE Program framework; Community Awareness and Respecting our Environment.

The voting period commences 1st April 2021 and will see the school with the most votes receive $5000, followed by the second highest with $3000 and the third receiving $2000 in grant funding towards their projects.

Diners at Ramsgate RSL Restaurants; ‘The Kitchen by Mikes Grill’ and ‘Zen Restaurant’ will be included in the voting process during the April voting period, giving the local community the chance to vote on their favourite projects that schools in our community want to launch and/or progress with.
