GoodWorks Small Grant Applications Now Open

GoodWorks Small Grant Application

The Rotary Club of Salem and Salem Rotary Foundation has funds available for smaller projects that will benefit our community. Grants generally range from $500 - $1,500 each.

Eligible projects for consideration are those that directly or indirectly foster, develop, promote, and encourage the health, education, and the general welfare of primarily youth in the city of Salem and the surrounding area. Interested applicants should submit proposals for a project focused on service projects performed by Salem area non-profit organizations.

Examples of purposes for which grants are typically made: scholarships, educational activities, programs or events and acquisition of equipment or supplies for educational or health purposes. Grants generally will not be made for general administrative or operating expenses or to retire financial debt.

A committee will review all proposals and make selections based on the funds available. The Rotary Club of Salem Board of Directors will determine what project(s) to fund. A formal announcement to the recipients and those who were not selected will be made no later than June 30th, 2021.
