How to apply for a grant
Applications open for Rotary’s community grants scheme
Melksham Rotary Club uses profits from the Art House Cafe in the Market Place to support projects that make a difference to the lives of the people of Melksham. However, profits have been lower this year than in previous years, so more modest grants (rather than large lump sums) will be donated, allowing funding for more projects to benefit the Melksham community. Successful applicants will be invited to a cheque presentation evening at the ArtHouse Café in June.
Please download the grant application form and the accompanying guidance. Please note additional information may be sort before Melksham Rotary can decide on awarding a grant.
Application form requests must be returned to the club by the 30th April.
The ArtHouse Cafe funds is only available for local good causes. For international or national donations, members of Melksham Rotary will run a dedicated fundraising event.
