Youngstown Rotary Foundation Offers Grants for Nonprofits
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The Youngstown Rotary Foundation on Tuesday announced a $30,000 Community Grant Program designed to support local nonprofit organizations making a positive impact in the city.
The program will offer two categories of grants addressing one or more of Rotary International’s seven areas of focus:
- Peace and conflict prevention/resolution.
- Disease prevention and treatment.
- Water and sanitation.
- Maternal and child health.
- Basic education and literacy.
- Economic and community development.
- Protecting the environment.
Community Impact Grants for Operational Support of up to $20,000 will be awarded to support a nonprofit organization’s mission rather than specific projects or programs. General operating support is the working capital nonprofits need to sustain their day-to-day operations, enabling nonprofits to build a strong and sustainable infrastructure to provide programs and services that will have the greatest impact.
Community Program/Project Grants up to $5,000 will be awarded to organizations supporting programs or projects that will make a significant, positive difference in the Youngstown community.
The 2023-2024 grant cycle is open through Dec. 15. Guidelines can be downloaded HERE, and an application can be downloaded HERE. For more information or to submit an application, email YoungstownRotaryGrantProgram@gmail.com.
