Hayward Rotary Club
Community Grant Program Instructions 2017-2018
Program Chairperson: "Hacksaw" Rick Hansen

Purpose: Rotary International is an organization of business and professional persons united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world. Rotary International’s areas of focus include promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education and growing local economies. To achieve that end, Hayward Rotary seeks to support the human service needs of the greater Hayward
community. Grants are given to not-for-profit organizations whose policies are formulated by a representative local board. Grants are made for specific projects and new programs.

Areas of Interest: The Hayward Rotary Club Board of Directors meets annually to determine its grant priorities for the new fiscal year. For this grant cycle the priorities include support for education, health and human services, youth, the elderly, poverty, the arts and the environment.

Program Limitations: Hayward Rotary Club does not make grants directly to individuals or for political or sectarian purposes, endowments, expenses related to fundraising activities, organizations intending to pass through grants, deficit liquidation proposals, and general operational expenses, as opposed to program specific costs. Grant requests must be made by a Tax Exempt Organization. There is a total of approximately $30,000 available. Grants up to $3,000 may be requested. Only one grant request per organization will be allowed.

Geographic Limitations: Priority will be given to programs located in and serving people within the city and unincorporated area of Hayward, CA.
