Camden Rotary Club reminds nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations in Knox County and Lincolnville that grant applications for 2020 are due by Saturday, February 29. Applications can be found by visiting camdenrotary.org.

The club prefers to fund projects for which the Camden Rotary Club award represents a significant portion of the project’s total cost. Applicants must be able to demonstrate the capacity and readiness to start the project for which it is seeking funding in 2020.

Available grants include one $10,000 gift for a specific project or program that directly benefits a community organization; one $5,000 gift for a specific project or program that directly benefits a community organization; one $5,000 youth-oriented grant for a specific project or program that benefits youth under age 20 in Knox County and Lincolnville; and five grants of $1,000 each for specific projects or programs that directly benefit community organizations.

Applicants may apply for more than one type of grant but may only win one grant. Grant recipients will be announced after a thorough review process by the charitable grants committee, the club’s board of directors and club members.
