As from 1st September 2017 the previous monthly grant of £250 is replaced by a new grant of between £500 and £750 to be awarded every three months.  The amount of the grant paid will depend on the need demonstrated by the applicant.  We are particularly keen to support local clubs, schools and organisations which themselves support children, teenagers, adults, the elderly and individuals with disabilities and/or additional needs.

 Examples of what the £500 to £750 grant could be used for might be: to buy or hire equipment, facilities or kit, a project or event, training assistance for groups, attendance at a special event, and so on.  Please note that the grant is for specifics, and not for a ‘general expenditure fund’.       

 Terms and Conditions

1.      Grants will be awarded as follows: in December selected from applications received by 31st October, in March from those received by 31st January, in June from those received by 30th April and in September from those received by 31st July.

2.      Applications are to be made on the form below and submitted online at www.estuaryrotary.org.uk and only applications made on the Kingsbridge Estuary Rotary Community Support form will be considered.   Applicants may be asked to give a presentation in person.

4.      Priority will be given to small groups and organisations who do not receive support from paid staff and/or professional fundraisers.

5.      Applications will be judged by a panel of Club members and subject to paragraph 10. below, one application will be selected every three months for a grant of between £500 and £750  (according to the demonstrated need of the applicant).

6.      Applicants agree that in making the application they are willing to take part in future publicity.

7.      As Rotary International is a non-religious and non-political organisation, regretfully, funding applications which directly promote religious or political activities cannot be considered.
