The Lakeville Rotary provides financial support to address the needs of our community. It is the belief of the Lakeville Rotary Club that we can best serve our community by focusing our efforts on scholarships and community projects.

The funds we award should meet one of the following criteria:

  • To reach out in helping our family units stay strong
  • To give back to seniors so that they can live a full life in their golden years
  • To help take care of those in a critical time of need
  • To enhance the educational experience

A portion of our proceeds from this years event will support 360 Communities. 360 Communities provides safety and stability to improve lives. Their dedicated staff and volunteers offer hope and support to over 16,000 individuals annually through nine programs across more than 40 locations. These include a network of five food shelves, two domestic violence shelters, two resource centers, and initiatives that promote school success from birth through high school graduation.

You can support 360 Communities at the Taste of Lakeville by a donation for their food selves (see list of needs), or contributing a monetary donation.

360 Communities: Help In The Moment. Hope For The Future.

Proceeds from the Taste of Lakeville benefit the Lakeville Rotary Foundation, which in turn awards funds to many deserving applicants, including but not limited to:
