Community Chest

A project by The Rotary Club of Medway

The Rotary Club of Medway has decided that whilst they support a number of high profile charities, there are a large number of local charities, groups, and organisations in our own community that we did not know about, who if they received relatively small sum of money this could be of real benefit and make the difference as to whether a project happened or not.

We have therefore decided to invite applications from local charities, groups, projects, etc in the Medway area that are there to serve the local community, to bid for sums of money up to a maximum value of £250.

There are a few simple requirements which must be met to qualify for funding:

  • Applicants should be non-profit making. (If possible be a registered charity, or attached or associated to one)
  • Have a bank account in the name of the group
  • The request must be for a specific thing/s they need such as equipment or trips
  • The money requested cannot be an addition to a larger fund, but must be for a specific item. (This can be a distinct part of a larger project)
  • The minimum funding is £50 and the maximum is £250 per grant
  • Your organisation must not have received a Medway Rotary Club Grant in 2017

Once the applications have been received, a panel of Rotarians will look through and decide which groups benefit based on which causes they feel are most deserving and reflect the needs of the local community.
