Local Community Service Grants

In addition to the ongoing partnerships we share with our long time community partners, the Rotary Club of Tampa also offers annual grants to local non-profit organizations. Each summer, applications are available for programs that serve children and families. In the 2021-2022 club year our club awarded grants totaling over $108,000 to 21 worthy local causes.

It is an honor to support our community in this way. 

Community Grant Applications are now available
and are due by August 26, 2022!

The Rotary Club of Tampa welcomes all qualified organizations to complete an application for consideration of funding during the 2022-2023 grant year.  Grant awards range from $1,000 - $5,000 and  considered based on funding availability, qualifications of the organization, and need/outcome for the community.  Preference will be given to organizations who did not receive funding in the last grant cycle from The Rotary Club of Tampa.

To be considered, an organization must meet the following criteria:
• Organization must serve Hillsborough County Florida
• Organization is an Internal Revenue Code 501(c)(3) in good standing

Projects that meet the following criteria are the most desired:
• Projects that leverage dollars and/or people power
• Creative projects that have a positive and measurable impact on the community
• Addresses a specific identified and prioritized need in the community

We look forward to meeting you!
