History of Glenville Rotary Foundation

The Foundation was established by the Glenville Rotary Club to allow longer-term planning and fundraising to augment its charitable community service objectives.  Foremost is the Foundation’s annual scholarship award to high school graduates who have exemplified the Rotary motto of “service beyond self” through extraordinary community service. At this time there are two scholarship opportunities: one for a college-bound student and one for a trade-school bound student.

Mission:

The Foundation manages an endowment fund with interest earned on assets disbursed through actions of an independent Board of Directors elected by the Club Membership.

Glenville Rotary Grants Process

Requests for grant assistance with a project initiative may be presented through member sponsorship or direct submission to the clubs Project Review Team.  General solicitations are less likely to be given consideration than specific events, projects, programs and initiatives.  The job of the Project Review Team is to evaluate received requests for funding,
based on their merits according to the club’s rubric and submit a recommendation to the Club Board. The Board may either accept, modify or reject the Team’s recommendations.

Attached is the rubric, or evaluation matrix, that is used to help ensure a thoughtful, balanced, attribute evaluation of received requests in accordance with club objectives.  Project Review Matrix
