Lancaster Rotary invites applications for third annual grant program
Thanks to a generous bequest from the late Lon Edwards, a Lancaster resident, Lancaster Rotary Club announces its third year of grant-making from the income generated from this fund. The Club expects to make up to $25,000 of grants to worthy tax-exempt organizations, governments, and religious organizations.
Grant recipients from the first two years’ grant programs included Whitefield Public Library, Mount Royal Academy, Pink Revolution, WMRHS Society of Sustainable Spartans, Lancaster Historical Society, Northern Forest Center, Heartwood Public Charter School, Colonel Town Players, Taproot, and Stratford School, among others.
Applicants may submit online applications, starting now, through May 17, 2024. Applications will be evaluated, and awards determined, by a committee of Rotarians with final announcement of grantees by June 30, 2024. Grant funds will be disbursed 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.
