The Rotary Club of Fort Worth South welcomes grant proposals from nonprofit organizations engaged in programs or projects that locally support SENIOR CITIZENS (age 60 and over). Strong preference will be given to services provided in Tarrant County, though immediately surrounding communities will be considered. The Rotary Club of Fort Worth South is offering grants ranging from $500 to $2,500.
The Rotary Club of Fort Worth South may choose to award all or any part of a grant request depending on funds available and the decision of the Foundation Committee and the Board of Directors.
The Rotary Club of Fort Worth South will NOT fund:
• Projects or programs that do not directly benefit SENIOR CITIZENS in our community
• Membership fees, ticket sales or event sponsorship
• Church-related activities
• Deficit budget expenses or retroactive funding
• Capital debt reduction
• Political or controversial projects or programs
Requests should include a letter describing the organization’s mission, the purpose for funding, the amount requested, those who would benefit, anticipated results from the program/project and any other information deemed important to conveying your request. Please limit your written request to two pages. Grant requests, along with a copy of your 501(c)(3) tax exempt letter, most recent form 990 and a program or agency budget, should be emailed to in a PDF file by December 10. Please include a contact name, physical address, email address and phone number. Additional information may be requested by the Rotary Club of Fort Worth South, including a face-to-face or site visit.
Grant criteria and grant policy may be altered at any time without notice if deemed appropriate by a vote of the Board of Directors of the Rotary Club Fort Worth South. Grant recipients will be notified by early January, 2022, and invited to a club meeting to receive their grant.
