Norfolk Rotary Charities is soliciting applications from deserving non-profit organizations for its 2020 grants. Application deadline is January 31, 2020. To apply, please download the application.
 
Last year Norfolk Rotary Charities awarded $41,009  to 23 local deserving non-profit organizations. Grants are provided by the generosity of Rotary Club members who support the club endowment and also contribute weekly to the club’s “congratulations and fines.” 
 
All applicants must:

1. Be an established 501(c)3 nonprofit organization working in Hampton Roads. (Note: There is a preference for organizations working regionally or primarily in Norfolk.)

2. Not have received a Rotary Club of Norfolk grant in 2018 or 2019. 

3. Apply for 2020 funding for either:

(a) specific supplies, equipment or tangible items. (Note: this will not fund salaries, scholarships or operating expenses)

(b) operating costs for an innovative program targeting unique client needs (this category was new for 2019, will continue in 2020, and will be granted for only 3-4 organizations)

4. Complete an application and submit it with five additional copies by the deadline. (Please DO NOT submit additional materials such as DVDs, annual reports, newsletters, Form 990s, etc.).

5. Be willing to speak to the Rotary Club of Norfolk and share information about how the grant would help your organization accomplish its mission.
