Lancaster Rotary Annouces New Grant Program
Thanks to a generous bequest from the late Lon Edwards, who lived in Lancaster, Lancaster Rotary Club announces its first year of grant-making from the income generated from this fund. The Club expects to make up to $30,000 of grants to worthy tax-exempt organizations, governments, and religious organizations.
Applicants may submit online applications starting on Monday, March 21, 2022. The application deadline is May 15, 2022. Applications will be rated and awards determined by a committee of Rotarians with final announcement of grantees by June 30, 2022, and disbursement of funds in July.
Qualifying applicants should outline proposals that help our communities in a tangible or measurable way, with special consideration to projects that align with Rotary International’s seven areas of focus:
  • Supporting education
  • Growing local economies
  • Protecting the environment
  • Fighting disease
  • Promoting peace
  • Providing clean water
  • Saving mothers and children
Organizations seeking grants should describe the goals and expected outcomes of the proposed project, provide a detailed implementation plan and project budget, and comment about how the initiative will be sustained in future years in the absence of additional grant funding.
Interested in applying? The application will be available on the Club’s Facebook page or just click HERE to download a fillable form.  All applications are due by May 15, 2022.
