Rotary Club offers $20,000 to nonprofit groups

 

The Rotary Club of Menlo Park is offering grants up to $20,000 to local nonprofit groups that identify a compelling public need in Menlo Park or a nearby community and propose a project to help solve that problem.

The grants to help fund the projects will range from $1,000 to $10,000, and will be awarded by March 31, according to Michelle Tsui, who is running the grant program for the club.

The deadline to apply for a grant is Jan. 31.

In recent years, the club has made grants to approximately 15 nonprofit groups, including Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children of San Mateo County (CASA), St. Anthony's Padua Dining Room, and the Ravenswood Education Foundation.

The goals and guidelines for this year's grant applications can be found at menloparkrotary.org (under the "Menlo Park Rotary Foundation" tab) or by sending an email to: mprotarygifts@gmail.com.
