The Rotary Club of Pensacola supports local community projects with a limited number of grants to charitable 501(c)3 organizations. These grants are awarded annually. The guidelines and timetable for this year’s grants application and the awards timetable is shown below.
Grant Application Guidelines
The Club supports projects that address areas such as:
Projects, by definition, include specific outcomes/deliverables and are timebound.
Grants are not automatically renewed or reconsidered each Rotary fiscal year, which begins July1. Previous applications not awarded a grant may be submitted again (updated as appropriate) since the mix of competing applications will vary from year to year.
In general, awards exclude any specific individual(s) who find themselves in a difficult financial situation and those who individually seek to do good works on their own. Individuals who want to engage in independent charitable work are requested to partner with an eligible charitable organization to submit a grant application.
A grant will only be considered if all documentation is complete and submitted by the deadline.
Recipients are required to provide the Rotary Club of Pensacola with a follow-up report summary regarding the effect of Rotary’s grant. This could include receipts, photographs, testimonials, numbers served, overall impact, etc.
Recipients are requested to acknowledge the Rotary Club of Pensacola in their own publicity and authorize Rotary to publish information about the project.
Projects can be short and simple or complex and lengthy. The Club’s grant is for use during the current fiscal year however. Support for a phase within a longer duration project is acceptable if it otherwise meets requirements.
