2017 Community Grants Application Press Release – Due Date

The Rotary Club of Crested Butte / Mt. Crested Butte announced earlier in 2016 a change to the format for its Community Grant Application process.  In the past, Community Grant Applications were accepted on a rolling request basis.  This sometimes prevented Applications being granted towards the end of the cycle as funds were already allocated to prior applicants.

The Community Grant Application change involved the establishment of a semi-annual grant cycle with Applications made in writing to the Rotary Club.  Those requesting grants are no longer required to initiate the process by making a presentation at the Rotary Club but must make a formal written request to the Community Grant Committee.  The change will allow all organizations that fit the Rotary Community Grant criteria an equal opportunity to request grant funds.

The 2017 Spring/Summer Cycle deadline to apply for a Rotary Community Grant is May 8th.  The Community Grant Committee will begin the selection process shortly thereafter.  Selected nonprofit organizations will receive their Rotary grants on July 12, 2017 at Rotary’s Business Meeting.

Learn more about Rotary’s Community Grant Program, including detailed guidelines such as application instructions, grant criteria and deadlines, by going to our website at www.crestedbutterotary.org.  Rotary looks forward to providing continued support to nonprofit organizations as they work to make a difference in our communities.  Please remember, Rotary’s Community Grants are one of many programs that are funded by the proceeds earned through Rotary’s Great Rubber Duckie Race.
