The Rotary Club of Los Alamos is looking to fund, up to $500 each, service projects in Los Alamos and around northern New Mexico. 

This is following a successful round last fall, during which four grants were appropriated for $500 each. 

Applications for the spring round will be accepted now through March 31. The application form can be found on the Rotary Club’s website at rotarylosalamos.com/grant-application.

All projects will be considered, but particular attention will be given to projects that fall into one of Rotary’s six areas of focus, including maternal and child health, basic education and literacy, economic and community development, peace and conflict resolution/prevention, disease prevention and treatment, and water and sanitation. 

Besides funding, organizations will also be able to specify whether there are opportunities for members of the Rotary Club to volunteer their time to assist with the project or initiative.

 Up to five organizations will be invited to the club’s meeting on April 17 at noon to give a short presentation about how the funds would be used. 

Winners of the grants will be announced and awards presented at the Rotary Club meeting on May 8.

To apply, organizations should visit rotarylosalamos.com/grant-application and submit the application form online. Alternatively they may download the form, fill it out, and return it by email to grants@rotarylosalamos.com.
