The Adelanto Rotary Community Foundation supports the community since 2013. Requests must be sponsored by a member in good standing of The Adelanto Rotary Club and the member cannot be an employee of the organization or receive any type of compensation or emuneration from the organization. As a standard practice, the Adelanto Rotary Community Foundation does not consider unsolicited requests for financial support and considers ineligible organizations that do not have a wide base of financial support or regular Our continuing operations. The organization’s overhead cannot exceed 25% (twenty five per cent) of its annual budget.
Grant Request Review Cycle
The Charity Committee of the Rotary Club of Adelanto accepts and reviews completed grant applications on an on-going basis, subject in all events to funding availability. Committee recommendations are submitted to the Adelanto Rotary Community Foundation Board of Directors for final approval and they normally meet once each month. Applicants will be notified of the amount of any award determinations including any non-grant of an award following the consideration of the grant by the Charity Committee and the decision of the Adelanto Rotary Community Foundation Board of Directors.
Proposals from $500 to $2,500 are encouraged, and larger requests will be considered and reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Any awarded amounts are subject to the Charity Committee’s and the Board of Directors’ discretion and funding availability.
