Community Grants Program

Each year the Rotary Club of Box Hill Burwood supports local community groups within our locale through our Community Grants Program.                                                   Grants assist local groups to provide necessary services that benefit our local community.

Eligibility for funding through Community Grants is dependent on the following criteria:

  • The organization must be an existing group delivering community service within, or nearby, the environs of the Box Hill area
  • The organization should be incorporated and have published an annual report and accounts within the previous twelve month period
  • Preference will be given to projects that support persons in need, particularly in the areas of youth, the elderly, or persons with physical or intellectual disabilities
  • Funding is to be for a specific program, project, or piece of equipment, but not for normal recurrent expenditure items
  • Strict accounting rules apply to ensure that the funds were spent in accordance with the grant submission. Photographic or written evidence of completion needs to be submitted to the Community Services Coordinator upon completion of your nominated project
  • The Rotary Club reserves the right not to disburse funds, in part or at all, if suitable submissions are not received
  • Grants will not be confirmed until a suitable interview has been conducted with intended recipients
