District 6460 Club Grants


Application process is now open for 2020-21 
Deadline is Aug 15, 2020 by email
OR postmarked Aug 8, 2020 by first class mail.

The Club Grants Program provides funding for one-time-only community-service projects that involve the active, personal participation of Rotarians. The projects should serve as a means of enhancing the community and/or improving lives of the less fortunate where Rotary clubs are present. Grants can also be applied for in situations where clubs are doing a service project outside their immediate areas, but priority for District Club Grants is generally given to local projects.

  • Maximum funding for a grant this year will be $2,500. Note this amount is based on total District Grant money allocation each year, which is dependent on Annual Fund Contributions from three years prior. Therefore, if you’d like more money available through this program in future years, encourage your individual Rotarians and clubs to contribute to the Annual Fund of The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International EVERY YEAR! THANKS!
