Purposes of the Grant:

  • To enhance a club's ability to have successful programming.
  • To encourage inter-club cooperation and camaraderie.
  • To increase regional support of member clubs.

Criteria for Receiving Grant:

  1. The joint club program must be actively planned and executed by 2 or more clubs. Extending passive invitations to attend does NOT comply with this requirement.

  3. The application should be submitted at least 3 weeks before the funds are desired.

  5. The program must not conflict with a regional event.

The grant will consist of funds up to $200 toward the cost of running a joint club program with each participating club receiving a subsidy in proportion to its contribution to the program expenses. The funds should be earmarked for the program, i.e. cost of a speaker, entertainer, etc., and should not go wholly for food, if possible. But, where the program is gratis - the speakers free - the grant can be provided for food.

  • Itemized income and expenses with receipts must be submitted before reimbursement.
  • Regional grants will be distributed in the order that applications are received and until budgeted funds are exhausted.
  • If a grant is approved and the program canceled, no reimbursement will be made.
  • A club may participate in only one grant per year (July 1 to June 30).
  • New programs require new applications and new approvals.
