Community Grants

Community grants are the largest single component of Palo Alto Rotary’s charitable budget. Local non-profit and educational organizations may apply once a year in early November.  A Grant Guidelines information sheet for 2018-19, with specific dates, is available on the Rotary website. Community Grants will be awarded at a Rotary Club meeting in March 2019.
