Rotary grant application deadline May 8
The Rotary Club of Crested Butte/Mt. Crested Butte announced earlier in 2016 a change to the format for its Community Grant Application process. In the past, Community Grant Applications were accepted on a rolling request basis. The Community Grant Application change involved the establishment of a semi-annual grant cycle with applications made in writing to the Rotary Club. Those requesting grants are no longer required to initiate the process by making a presentation at the Rotary Club but must make a formal written request to the Community Grant Committee. The 2017 Spring/Summer Cycle deadline to apply for a Rotary Community Grant is May 8. The Community Grant Committee will begin the selection process shortly thereafter. Selected non-profit organizations will receive their Rotary grants on July 12, 2017 at Rotary’s business meeting.
