Grants

Financial Support to the Community

Our aim is to provide assistance to smaller organizations in the local community who may not have access to professional fundraising resources.

Grants are awarded from funds accumulated through fundraising projects such as special events and from the Club’s endowment and investment income. Applications are reviewed twice each year and must be received no later than 3 pm on the deadline dates of March 15th and September 15th.
