T1011EN_4cThe Rotary Club of Ithaca  announces that applications are now being accepted for its Community Grants program, which is intended to promote the quality of life in Tompkins County. Our intention is to fund several smaller grants in full. Small non-profit organizations are especially encouraged to apply.

We invite your requests for needs that are not funded by general funding sources, or for special projects. Historically, grants have been awarded iu the $200 - $1,000 range.
1.                  All grant applicants and their beneficiaries must be within Tompkins County.
2.                   Grants are to be expended within one year of the date of the grant, without expectation of further support.
3.                  Grants are not normally made for operating budgets or endowments.
4.                  Grant requests will be reviewed for consideration each April. Selected recipients will receive funding at a special luncheon award ceremony held each May.
5.                  Proposals must be submitted in writing on the organization's letterhead, and are limited to two pages. The following information should be included:
a.       The legal name of the organization, a description of its mission, the names of the governing body/board and officers, a simple budget breakdown for the project/request, and the name, address, email, and telephone number of the grant contact person.
b.      A concise statement describing the grant requested and its significance to the community.
6.                  Submissions must be postmarked by April 14.
7.                  Please send us a brief note or email once you've implemented your project.
