The Youngstown Rotary Foundation is announcing a $30,000 Community Grant Program for local nonprofit organizations impacting the City of Youngstown. 

The Community Grant Program will provide two categories of grant opportunities addressing one or more of Rotary International's seven areas of focus: 

• Peace and conflict prevention/resolution 

• Disease prevention and treatment 

• Water and sanitation 

• Maternal and child health 

• Basic education and literacy 

• Economic and community development 

• Protecting the environment 

The Youngstown Rotary Foundation has allocated two types of grants for the 2023-2024 Rotary Year. Local nonprofits are encouraged to submit a grant application.

Community Impact Grants for Operational Support of up to $20,000 will be awarded to support a nonprofit organization's mission rather than specific projects or programs. General operating support is the working capital nonprofits needs to sustain their day-to-day operations, enabling nonprofits to build a strong and sustainable infrastructure to provide programs and services that will have the greatest impact.

Community Program and Project Grants up to $5,000 will be awarded to organizations supporting programs or projects that will make a significant, positive difference in the Youngstown community.

To submit an application, and for questions, please email [email protected].

A confirmation email will be sent when an application is received. All applicants will be informed of the Youngstown Rotary Foundation decisions after December 15, 2023.
