Spring Grants Open
We invite community organizations and schools whose work aligns with our mission as Rotarians to apply for our Spring Grants. Applications are available on our website and are due April 28, 2023, the last Friday in April.
Individual awards typically range from $300 - $1,000. Larger grants may be available on a case by case basis. 
Thanks to our Club Grant Chair, Sarah Palmer, for her leadership. And thanks to our sponsors and club members for pitching in at the Chili Cook Off to raise the money we are able to share to serve our community!
Twice a year, in November and May, we award grants to deserving community organizations whose work aligns with our mission as Rotarians. We are grateful to be able to extend our reach into the community by partnering with our grant recipients. 
Selection Criteria
Criteria for Evaluation:
1.  Program was not funded in the previous grant cycle.
2.  Program is self-sustaining with other funding (not reliant on RCLV).
3.  Grant request is for a tangible item. This is not a grant to provide general programmatic funding or to pay salaries.
4.  Project serves the Tri-Valley Community. Please be clear on this in your application.
5.  Preference is given to communities such as youth, seniors,  veterans, or low income groups but not to the exclusion of other well-deserving projects.
4.  Applicant must be sponsored by a Rotary Club of Livermore Valley member. Please contact us if you need a sponsor; a list of available members will be provided. This will help you to write a better grant application.
5.  If you are applying as an applicant from the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District (LVJUSD), please obtain and submit an approval from your principal or other administrator.
6.  A budget for the proposal must be included. This is a budget for how you will spend the grant funding (not an overall budget of your organization).
For education-related grant applications, The Rotary Club of the Livermore Valley will share information with the Livermore Valley Education Foundation (LVEF) to determine eligibility for LVEF and/or RCLV funding.  Application information will then be shared with Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District to determine if there is funding through the District that would replace or augment an RCLV or LVEF grant award.
