Community GrantsThe charitable needs of our community are great and every quarter the Rotary Club of Fort Collins (RCFC) will distribute Community Grants sponsored by our membership to very deserving non-profit service organizations in the local Fort Collins area. The RCFC Community Grants Committee looks for innovative projects and services that respond to community issues, address local needs, are available to the community as a whole or large segment in need, and will improve community members lives. The RCFC Community Grants Committee will review all Grant applications and submit recommendations to the Rotary Club Board of Directors for final selection. Please review the following important links and information if you are interested in applying for a Community Grant:
