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.

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.

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.
