The Rotary Club of Hamilton AM invites organizations to submit funding proposals to support projects that promote the health and development of our community, the City of Hamilton.
Up to $15,000 is available for funding in 2022 for one large project from one organization, or a combination of projects from a number of organizations, which make an application in response to this call for proposals circulated through social media and our website.  Requests for multi-year project funding will also be considered.  
Preference will be given to proposals which demonstrate the following:
  • A focus on children, youth and/or their families
  • “Bricks & Mortar” projects, which provide tangible, permanent results
  • Offer potential volunteer opportunities for Rotary members and their families
  • Sustainability; the ability to be reasonably maintained in the future with a minimum of negative environmental impact
  • The meeting of a significant community need; and
  • Matching dollar arrangements (which can include in-kind options)
Please note that Major Grants will not be considered for:
  • Administrative or ongoing programming or operational costs
  • Sporting events; teams or individuals
  • Debt relief
  • Fundraising campaigns led by other charities
  • Individuals or unincorporated organizations
Please complete the attached application and provide all information and supporting documentation as requested:
