Rotary Club is accepting grant funding applications
The Rotary Club of Steamboat Springs has announced it is accepting applications for its second round of annual grant funding. Each year, the local service organization awards about $10,000 in grants to nonprofits.
The club has established several areas of focus that guide its grant-making decisions. Some of these guidelines include:
■ Activity that improves the quality of life in Steamboat Springs and Routt County.
■ Activity that primarily serves seniors and youths.
■ Grant funds must be used for specific activities, not operational purposes.
■ Grants will support distinctive, one-time activities and should not be depended upon for multiple years.
A grants committee will review all applications and then award grants of less than $1,000 to worthy nonprofit groups. Applications and a complete set of grant submission guidelines can be accessed through the club's website at http://www.clubrunner.ca/portal/Home.aspx?accountid=3667.
Completed applications should be returned to Jane Toothaker at email@example.com by the March 15 deadline. Applicants will be notified in mid-April about whether they received grant funding.
