The Rotary Club of Annapolis will accept grant applications until January 15, 2013, to distribute the proceeds totaling over $50,000 from its 67th annual Crab Feast held in August 2012.
The Rotary Club of Annapolis has a long-standing tradition of commitment to the local community. Grant selection is done by a club committee which changes each year to foster a fresh perspective on the community’s greatest needs. In the past the club has supported organizations working in various areas, including social reform, health care, the environment, and the arts, among others. Because Annapolis is the club’s designated service area, it disburses funds only within this area.
Grant money must help the Annapolis community in some demonstrable way, go toward funding specific projects and not operating expenses, result in the improvement of quality of life for the Annapolis community, and touch as many people as possible.
Applicants may apply for a grant online at www.annapolisrotary.org/application. Online applications are preferred but you can also apply by mail using the online application as a template (Mail to: Crab Feast Grants Committee, Annapolis Rotary Club, P.O. Box 3175, Annapolis, MD 21403). Grant requests will be evaluated, and recipients will be notified and receive the grant funds during February and March 2013.
