Rotary club offers capital grants to nonprofits

WESTFIELD — One aspect of the Rotary Club of Westfield’s long history of service to the Westfield community is a program of service fund grants and the club is ready to offer this year’s direct grants to local non-profit entities.

The club’s grants committee has announced that applications for 2021 grants will be accepted during December.

The grants are open to non-profit agencies with 501(c)3 status and missions which follow the principles of Rotary International and local Rotary clubs. They are available for capital improvement projects supporting the applicant organizations’ missions up to  $1,500.

Applicants must submit an application prior to Dec. 31 with an accompanying narrative describing the purpose of the funding request.

Application forms can be found at, and should be mailed (with the accompanying narrative and a copy of the organization’s 501(c)3 status) to the Grants Committee, Rotary Club of Westfield, P.O. Box 754, Westfield, MA 01086.

For more information about these grants, or any other aspect of Rotary, interested parties may contact the club’s president, Carl Hartdegen, at 413-562-8557. The club meets on Mondays at noon at the Bubble Mug Cafe in the Pottery Cellar on the ground level of the Mill at Crane Pond. Visitors and prospective members are always welcome.
