2019 Rotary Grant Application

Rotary Club of Alexandria

2019 Grant Program
Grant Eligibility Criteria

The Rotary Club of Alexandria Grant Program provides financial support to nonprofit organizations that advance literacy for children and adults and/or improve the lives of children, youth, seniors, and others with special needs within the city limits of Alexandria.

The Rotary Club of Alexandria funds specific programs and activities that strengthen core programs, provide seed funding for a new program, program element or initiative, or support capital expenditures. Collaborative projects with other nonprofits are accepted, with a single grant made to the lead organization. Usually, grants for ordinary operating or maintenance expenses are not considered.

The grant application should specifically address the need being met and identify the impact of the program or initiative for which funding is being sought. Please make sure to include the number of City Alexandria residents served, as well as recent demographics, including, to the extent feasible, an estimate of the percentage of low or moderate-income individuals served through the program.

A key objective of the Grants Program is to form mutually-beneficial working relationships between the Rotary Club of Alexandria and our grant recipients, with each supporting the programs and activities of the other. In particular, the Rotary Club welcomes and encourages the active involvement of grant recipients in publicizing, and participating in its annual “Taste for Giving” program, which is the primary source of the funding for the Rotary grants program. The Rotary Club of Alexandria also requests that awardees acknowledge Rotary funding in their newsletters, annual reports, and on social media.

Grant amounts typically range from $500 to $5000 with the average of $2,050 per recipient.

Additional, more specific, eligibility criteria will be found on the Grant Application form. Applications should be filed no later than February 28, 2019, and grant decisions will be announced on or about May 1, 2019. Awardees will be invited to attend the Contributions Day Ceremony, to be held on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at Noon at Belle Haven Country Club. For further information, please contact the Contributions Committee at Email The Rotary Club of Alexandria reserves the right to periodically change these eligibility criteria and/or incorporate additional criteria.
