Charities & Grants

Guidelines for 2022

Since 1961, the Montgomery Rotary Club has provided more than $1 million in funding for local, nonprofits for any number of special projects. The funds to be provided are raised at an annual charity event, so while we take applications for specific project amounts, please know that the distribution is dependent on the funds raised. This year’s grant will be for the purchase of a vehicle (i.e. van) for your organization’s needs. The vehicle needs to have The Montgomery Rotary Club’s name as well.

Additional grant information

Applicants may request any amount needed. Past projects funded have ranged from $5,000 to $20,000, and Rotary may select more than one applicant in a given year.

  • The project must serve an important and valid community need.

  • The project must be completed within 12 months of receiving the grant.

  • The committee particularly looks at projects for which there is a naming opportunity for Rotary.

How to apply

  1. Description of project to be funded and the amount needed. If the grant request is part of a larger project, please share how the additional portion of the project will be funded.

  2. Highlight anticipated outcomes of your project … will it meet current needs or is it needed to help grow your current program/services?

  3. List any other community partners working with you on this project and funding they may be providing.

  4. Name of individual submitting grant, along with contact information (email and phone).

  5. Most recent financial statement of your organization.

  6. Proof of 501(c)3 status

  7. List of current Board of Directors

  8. Description of how your organization will help promote the Rotary charity event (e.g., do you have board members who might buy tickets? A community newsletter in which we could place an announcement?)
