Auburn Rotary Club - Community Needs Grant Request

We are now accepting application for PROJECTS performed by organizations in our area. Each project will be evaluated on whether or not it adheres to or satisfies club and Rotary International goals of service. We will require applicants who are approved to produce a written report and potentially verbal presentation for the club on how the funding was used and its impact on the community.

Having that kind of transparency will allow us to maintain a healthy, ongoing relationship with your organization as well as allow you to present your accomplishments to the club and be recognized for a successful partnership with us.

This form is used to request the allocation of Community Needs funds in accordance with the PROCEDURES section of our website. Please provide as much information as you believe appropriate to support your request. This information will be used by the Community Needs Committee for preparing a priority listing for recommending the award of funds. Final approval of grants will be decided by the club officers.

Please note: upon completion of this you will receive a confirmation number both on screen and via email. As long as you receive a confirmation number, we have your application. If you do not receive one, please contact us as something may not have come through. Thank you for all you do!
