Crested Butte Rotary Grants 2016

Community Grant Program

As of 2020, the Crested Butte Rotary Club has returned to an annual cycle for issuing community grants to local 501c3 non-profit organizations.

2022 funding requests are now open through June 22, 2022.

The Crested Butte/Mt Crested Butte Rotary Club provides Community Grants to very deserving nonprofit organizations as well as the public schools on an annual basis.

The funding for the Grants is generated from Rotary’s Great Rubber Duckie Race proceeds. The Club’s areas of focus for funding are Education Programs, Health & Human Service Programs, Youth Programs and Arts & Culture. The Club focuses on benefitting youth in each of these funding categories. The Community Grants Committee will review all Grant applications and submit recommendations to the Rotary Club Board of Directors for their review and consideration.
