The Rotary Club of Fort Worth South is pleased to announce the availability of community grants to non-profit organizations from the club’s Fort Worth Foundation. This year, the club is focusing on the needs of Veterans. Grants are available to support educational, medical, socio-economic, mental health, housing or other needs of Veterans and their families. 
 
Requests should include a letter describing the organization’s mission, the specific purpose for funding, the amount requested, those who would benefit, anticipated results from the program/project and any other information deemed important in 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 project or agency budget, should be emailed in a PDF file to THockerRotary@gmail.com by November 30, 2020. Please include a contact name, physical address, email address and phone number in case additional information is needed.

Grant recipients will be notified in writing by late December. The Rotary Club of Fort Worth South will award the grants during a regular weekly meeting in January 2021. Grant recipients will be invited to attend and make a brief presentation about their organization.
