While our Community Projects initiative is open to all human service, educational, and cultural not-for-profit programs, our funding tends to favor programs which reach the broadest constituencies and whose services are aimed at client groups with the greatest demonstrated need.
Our funding pool is not great, averaging approximately $7,000/yr. in each of the last three years. At the same time, we usually receive 15-20 applications. While we want our grants to make a meaningful difference in the programs we support, we must also be mindful of the great breadth of worthwhile services that our applicants provide to our community.
In an effort to support as many of these worthwhile programs as possible, it is becoming increasingly rare for us to fund organizations in successive years.
Since its founding in 1920, the Staunton Rotary Club has taken great pride in our positive involvement in the community and in area programs which seek to add quality to the life of our citizens. Your organization is one of those programs, and we salute you and your team for your good work.
REMINDER: All applications must be received on or before May 11, 2018. Applications should be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to Hardy Dawkins, 301 N. Augusta St., Staunton, VA 24401
