Community Chest Project

Supporting local charities, groups and non-profit organisations

Be The Inspiration Logo


The Rotary Club of Medway supports a number of high profile charities, but there are many local charities, groups, and organisations in our own community that we may not know about which could benefit from a relatively small sum of money.  A grant from our Community Chest could make all the difference as to whether or not a community project happens.  

We invite applications from local charities, groups, projects, etc in the Medway area that serve the local community, to bid for sums of money up to a maximum value of £250.

There are a few simple requirements which must be met to qualify for funding:

  • Organistions should be non-profit making, if possible applicants should be a registered charity, or attached to or associated with one. 
  • Have a bank account in the name of the group. 
  • The request must be for a specific item they need, such as equipment or a trip, not just an addition to a larger general fund. 
  • The maximum sum available for each project is £250.  Organisations may only apply for one grant, 
  • Your organisation must not have received a Medway Rotary Club Grant in the previous year.

    2019 Community Chest Applications

    Applications for the 2019 Community Chest grants are now invited.  The closing date for applications is 2nd April 2019.

    To apply submit an application online or download the PDF application form to complete and return by post/email.    

    Once the applications have been received, a panel of Rotarians will evaluate and decide which bids best support the needs of the local community.  

    Successful applicants will be invited to send a representative to the Rotary evening meeting at Gillingham Golf Club on Tuesday 28th May to receive their award.
