With the COVID-19 pandemic posing fundraising hurdles for nonprofits, the Rotary Club of Fresno’s annual grant program couldn’t come at a better time.
The club is accepting grant applications for 2021. The deadline for applications is Wednesday, April 15.
Every year, Fresno Rotary and the Fresno Rotary Foundation award grants to educational and nonprofit charitable organizations in the greater Fresno area for projects that positively impact the community.
$1 Million in Giving During the Club’s Lifetime
The service organization and its partners have contributed more than $1 million to the community through the decades
Next year, said Fresno Rotary President-elect Ryan Jacobsen, the group anticipates providing more than $150,000 through its many different services and support efforts.
“Globally, Rotarians proudly put ‘service above self’, and the Rotary Club of Fresno is no exception,” Jacobsen said. “Through our grant process for the local community, we look forward to supporting those who make this local region shine.”
How to Apply
This year’s application process is slightly different than prior years, most notably the deadline and required documentation. Interested parties are encouraged to review and submit the application early. Applications are available for download at www.fresnorotary.org under the “Grants” tab.
