The Rotary Club of Fort Collins (RCFC) plans to award financial grants to deserving 501(c)(3) non-profit service organizations located in the Fort Collins area. Grants will be awarded in specific categories quarterly. For the first Rotary quarter of 2023, the category will be Education Programs.
Key dates: 1) We will begin accepting applications on the day of the Press Release, July 1, and 2) Application due date is Friday, August 25, 2023 @ 5:00 pm. 3) Grant awards will be made starting September, 2023.
Complete details of the grant program, eligibility criteria, application requirements, grant categories, submission instructions, and submission dates for each category may be found at http://rotarycluboffortcollins.org/Page/community-grants.
The Community Grants Committee will favor innovative projects that address local needs and contain an active volunteer service opportunity for RCFC members. Please provide detailed information about any volunteer activities related to your grant application project so that we may consider the recruitment of Rotary Club of Fort Collins members as volunteers. Grants may be used for special projects or services that include capital items.
Grants cannot be used to retire debt, for general operating expenses, to assist specific individuals or to duplicate an established project in the community. Published materials related to a grant award project (magazines, flyers, brochures, booklets, etc.) should be imprinted with the Rotary International Gear Symbol logo and should acknowledge support from the Rotary Club of Fort Collins.
Organizations receiving grant awards will be asked to submit a grant award project report six months after the grant award. The Community Grants Committee will evaluate all grant applications received by the deadline below and then will approve grants to be funded.
Completed applications for Education Program Grants must be submitted in electronic pdf format by email to: email@example.com by 5:00 p.m., on Friday, March 31, 2023.
Grant recipients in the Education category will be notified, and checks will be distributed starting September 2023.
