The Rotary Club of Farmville is now accepting applications for its newly established Annual Community Service Grant from organizations whose activities promote and enhance the quality of life for citizens of the Town of Farmville/Prince Edward County but may also have a greater footprint in the region for their project. Organizations must be not-for-profit, and benefit local citizens. The grant is a contribution of up to Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000).
It is preferred that the grant be used in the following manner: as seed money to start a “bricks and mortar” or equipment project, and not for general or operational expenses; however, it is not the intention of Rotary to exclude a worthwhile and deserving project.
Applications may be obtained by visiting the Club’s website at https://www.farmvillevarotary.org/ or by sending a request by e-mail to Club Secretary Douglas Stanley at firstname.lastname@example.org. Completed applications must be submitted with ten (10) copies, and cannot contain any additional material other than the completed application. Applications must be received no later than Friday, October 14, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. at the Prince Edward County Administrator’s Office at 111 N. South Street, 3rd Floor, or postmarked by no later than Friday, October 14, 2022, if mailed to the Farmville Rotary Club at P.O. Box 659, Farmville, VA 23901.
A committee will screen all applications, select the finalists, and present those finalists to the full membership for final selection of the grant recipient. Finalists will be given an opportunity to personally explain their projects to the full membership of the Rotary Club at its regular meeting, currently scheduled for Thursday, November 3, 2022, at 12:00 Noon at the Community Center at the Woodland, before a vote is taken. The decision of the full membership is final.
