Rotary Club of Livermore Valley Offers Local Grants
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. 
 
Individual awards typically range from $300 - $1,000. Larger grants may be available on a case by case basis. Grants are awarded to organizations; grants to benefit an individual person are only given as an exception.
 
To apply for a grant, please download and complete the Rotary Club of Livermore Valley Grant Application and email it, along with the project budget and project description (if more space is needed than is on the application) to Grant Chair Sarah Palmer and livermorevalleyrotaryclub@gmail.com
 
Fall Grant applications are due by the second Tuesday in October.
Spring Grant applications are due by the fourth Tuesday in April.
 
Please contact Sarah Palmer about the upcoming grant cycle.
