Beneficiaries

The Beneficiaries committee meets to reviews the grants submitted, conducts site visits to all the agencies that meet the guidelines, brings their review/evaluation to the committee for discussion. The Beneficiary committee then chooses the 12 agencies recommended for funding. The beneficiary chairs bring that recommendation to the CBB executive committee to be approved, and it is then presented to the full CBB. Over the course of its history, The Rose Ball has given $3,315,685 to a variety of well-deserving Upstate non-profit organizations.
