Community Services Grant Application Procedure

Effective 7/1/2005 any organization requesting monetary support from the Morro Bay Rotary Club will need to submit a grant application. Grant applications will be evaluated in the order they are received, unless deemed urgent, by our grant committee. Funds are limited and expected to run out before June 30, 2011, so it is suggested that applications be submitted in a timely manner. Preference will be given to organizations or projects specifically benefiting the geographical area that our club serves (Morro Bay, Cayucos, Los Osos), or that provide desired services not available in our local area.
