LOU ANN VOGLER GRANTS PROGRAM

Some people dream of success while other people

get up every morning and make it happen.

~ Wayne Huizenga.

Altrusans represent people who wake up every morning and find ways to make things happen. Not only do we find ways to make things happen, but we help others do so as well. This year, the Altrusa Club of Chula Vista, Inc. Foundation awarded $20,000 to organizations and individual members of our community.

LOU ANN VOGLER

Lou Ann Vogler.png

Lou Ann Vogler was an important part of our District, serving as the District's “Web Mistress” for at least two biennium and took our District kicking and screaming into the 21st Century, helping to set up Club websites and our District website. Once Lou Ann accepted a responsibility, she completed that responsibility no matter how difficult. Lou Ann got our Club to accept credit cards and use Square. She completed the process that created our Club's Foundation and was adamant about starting a grant program for the Foundation. She passed away shortly after we implemented our new grant program, which we named the Lou Ann Vogler Memorial Grants Program in her honor.
