Dec. 31 is the deadline for community groups to apply for grants from the Annapolis Rotary Club for proceeds from the 68th annual crab feast held in August 2013.
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 arenas, including social reform, health care, the environment, and the arts to name a few. Because Annapolis is the club’s designated service area, it is restricted to disbursing funds within this area only.
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 or by mail using the online application as a template (mail to 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 of 2014.
