CAMDEN — The Camden Rotary Club Foundation invites nonprofit 501c3 organizations that improve people’s lives in Knox County and Lincolnville to apply for grants until Jan. 31.

Awards will include four large grants: one for $10,000 and three for $5,000 (one reserved for a project that serves young people). Two small grants of $2,500 each are also available.

The foundation favors projects whose grant awards represent a sizable portion of a project’s total cost. Also, applicants must demonstrate that they are able and ready to start in 2023 on the project for which it seeks funding. Previous recipients of large grants must wait three years to reapply, and previous small grant recipients must wait two years.

“Our fundraising efforts over the last year have made it possible for us to provide $30,000 to charitable causes in 2023,” said Camden Rotary Grants Committee Chair Richard Householder. “Our grants committee, board of directors, and members will announce our 2023 grantees in March after we carefully review the applications.”

Complete details and application forms are available on the grants page of the club’s website: camdenrotary.org.
