The Rotary Club of Gunnison invites proposals from charitable organizations in the Gunnison Valley for grant support. We hope these proposals support programs and projects that “help foster the general well-being of our community”.

The Rotary Club of Gunnison is a dedicated group of local service-minded people encouraging high ethical standards, building peace, promoting truth and enhancing friendships. Listed below are many of the ways we support our community through volunteer hours or from fund-raising events:

 Provide every Gunnison 3rd grader with their own dictionary
 Provide every Gunnison 8th grader with their own Constitution reference booklet
 Award college scholarships to high school seniors
 Review and award funds to non-profits and other organizations in our valley
 Send youth to Rotary Leadership summer camp
 Host Foreign Exchange students
 Clean up a mile of US Highway 50
 Help eradicate polio through donations to Paul Harris through the Rotary Foundation
 Staged 4th of July Fireworks for 62 years

Rotary International is the world’s largest service organization with 1.2 million members in over 200 countries. It is not religious or political. Rotary is dedicated to improving the lives of people at home and around the world, especially our youth. Membership is by invitation and reflects a cross-section of community representation.

Organizations interested in applying for a grant must be tax exempt or a charitable nonprofit organization. The deadline for receipt of completed applications is May 10, 2018. An application along with the explanation of the general criteria and guidelines can be downloaded from the Gunnison Rotary Club website on the grants page or below.

Please note that, if your organization receives grant funding, a member of your organization will be asked to attend the Rotary meeting at 12 noon on June 19, 2018. Also, a member of your organization may be asked to attend the 2018 Rotary Banquet to be recognized.
