Endowment Fund Grants
In 1966, the Birmingham Rotary Club, in an effort to expand its ability to perform charitable work, created the Birmingham Rotary Club Endowment Fund. Grants are awarded to other charities and/or directly to worthy individuals or causes that fall into Rotary's seven areas of focus:
  • Prevention and resolution of conflicts and the promotion of peace
  • Prevention and treatment of disease
  • Clean water and sanitation
  • Mother and child's health
  • Basic education and literacy
  • Economic and community development
  • Supporting the environment
Grant applications are reviewed twice per year and are due on April 15th & October 15th.  Do you have a project or non-profit that meets one of Rotary's 7 areas of focus?  To apply for a grant, please use the following link to download the grant application form.  If you have any questions or would like more information on the grant process, please contact us using the "Contact Us" link at the top of the page.
