The donation will be applied to the chapter's current $45,000 fundraising campaign to construct a Building Tomorrow Academy, slated to serve more than 300 students in rural Uganda.
"We are extremely grateful to the Rotary Club of Greencastle for the support they've provided us," said David Dietz, Building Tomorrow's DePauw chapter president. "We're really excited about the work we've been doing and the ability to include such awesome supporters has made it even better."
To date, the Building Tomorrow chapter at DePauw has raised more than $23,000 in support of a new academy. The chapter hopes to have its efforts completed by the end of the 2010-11 academic year.
Building Tomorrow is an international social-profit organization encouraging philanthropy among young people by raising awareness and funds to build and support educational infrastructure projects for underserved children in sub-Saharan Africa.
Building Tomorrow works with a college network of over 25 chapters nationwide and has a partnership with the 245,000 member-strong Key Club International, the world's largest high school service organization.
To date, Building Tomorrow has opened six Academies in Uganda, providing a safe, permanent learning environment for more than 1,300 students.
