The grant application period is open until Friday, June 26, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. No grant applications will be accepted after the June 26th deadline.  Grants will be awarded at a virtual Rotary meeting on Friday July 10, 2020. 

The maximum request for each grant is $2,000.  Non-profits with a 501c3 status are eligible to fill out an application on the Springfield Rotary clubs website  https://forms.gle/HyLWi9Y3Kq5M7erP6.

For application questions, please email Rotarian Alicia Garcia at alicia.garcia022@gmail.com.  Organizations may use the grant for any capital improvement project related to combatting the current Covid-19 pandemic.

COMMUNITY GRANTS

 

This year due to the pandemic surrounding Covid-19, the Springfield Rotary Club will NOT be conducting their annual Paul Harris dinner in June. 

The club decided that with the great difficulties surrounding our community, the Springfield Rotary Club would continue to provide their annual grants to support local Springfield organizations who are making a positive difference!

The maximum request for each grant is $2,000.  Non-profits with a 501c3 status are eligible to fill out an application on the Springfield Rotary clubs website  https://forms.gle/HyLWi9Y3Kq5M7erP6. For application questions, please email Rotarian Alicia Garcia at alicia.garcia022@gmail.com

Organizations may use the grant for any capital improvement project related to combatting the current Covid-19 pandemic.
