Inverness Loch Ness Rotary Grant Scheme 2017 - Apply here
Local Grants: a grant of up to £200 is available each month, funded by the Automaton in the Eastgate Centre
The Rotary Club of Inverness Loch Ness offers monthly grants available to smaller charities, organisations and clubs in the Inverness area. Bids can be lodged for between £50 and £200. A total of £200 will be allocated each month.
The grant must be used to benefit people or communities in the Inverness area. The criteria used in making the awards will be:
• a clear benefit to people or communities
• the organization, club or charity must have longterm sustainability
• the grant will be used quickly rather than saved in the bank for future spending.
If a bid is not successful in a particular month it will be considered with other bids in subsequent months.
