Community Service Grants
The Rotary Club of Abbotsford is a fellowship of community members who volunteer their time and raise money through fundraising efforts to support and fund local community projects and services. Rotary Club of Abbotsford annually accepts Service Project funding requests from local organizations whose requests fall within our general guidelines below. Applications that fit the criteria are not automatically guaranteed fund, the Rotary Club of Abbotsford reviews applications based on our current funding priorities and available resources. The maximum total annual grants awarded will be
up to $15,000, with maximum funding to an individual project not to exceed $5,000.
 
 
  1. Service Projects must clearly identify opportunities to ‘brand’ the Rotary Club of Abbotsford financial
    support, through the use of club name and logo in promotional material, newsletter and/or social media.
  2. Preference is given to funding requests for specific programs or projects that provide a long-lasting
    positive impact in our community and leave a physical asset in the community.
  3. Service Projects that benefit children, seniors at risk, address poverty and hunger, support efforts on
    behalf of the environment and literacy.
  4. The Rotary Club is looking for Service Projects that offer not only the opportunity to support financially
    but also provide our membership with the prospect of directly participating in a ‘hands-on” manner to
    support the project.
  5. Service Project funding is designed for community capital projects, and will not be considered for ongoing
    operational funding.
