Does your club have a service project it wants to get off the ground?  Our District has $7300 additional Foundation funds available for Community and Springboard Grants.   Applications are due (electronically) to District Grants Coordinator John Atwood by midnight of September 1.  Application forms and guidelines are posted under the Foundation tab on the home page of the District website.

John recommends that clubs refer to the district website for the kinds of projects that may be funded. Some important considerations include projects that are new, innovative, sustainable, and include direct Rotarian involvement.  Projects that provide any personal compensation, or which supplant or replace governmental funding are not eligible.  Given the competitive nature of these grants,  even good applications might not be fully funded as the amount remaining -- $7300 -- is relatively modest.  Questions?
