Who Do We Help?
 
All of the funds from The Rotary Hoop-A-Thon stay in your local community. In 2023 you helped us raise $53,785 for kids in East Vancouver.  Thank You!

 

We awarded funds for scholarships, the Strathcona Basketball Program and Youth Leadership Training.  

 

Scholarships help students with their tuition and other costs for college and university. All of the students who receive Rotary funding have demonstrated their commitment to community service, youth leadership and volunteerism - and have a verified need for financial support due to family and individual circumstances.

-Vincent S. - $10,000

-Shahar B. - $7000 

-Piper Y. - $5000

-Enda C. - $5000

-Charlie H. - $2000 

-Sam T. - $2000

Each of the following students received a $1000 scholarship:
