The Rotary Club of Everett wants to improve conditions and address racial inequalities in the Everett area by funding local projects.

The Local Impact Grants program is intended to support Everett non-profits whose work improves community health and wellness, education and literacy, provides food and housing security or helps dismantle barriers for members of our community.  Grants are open to all, but organizations supporting youth or addressing racial inequities have priority.

Applicants must have 501(c)(3) status or be from K-12 schools with a school ID number. Other requests may be considered if they advance Rotary’s goals in compliance with the club’s 501(c)(3) status. Both the applicant organization and the project must be located in Everett.

Proposals are limited to a single year, although an applicant may submit requests each year. Multiyear grants require Board of Directors approval.

Local Impact grants in the category “Emergent Impact Grant” are awarded up to $2,000. “Accelerator Impact Grants” are eligible for up to $4,000.  These are grants intended to generate a greater community impact or kick start a new idea or concept.

Grants are for projects only, and may not fund operating expenses, deficits, for-profit activities, retroactive requests, salaries or capital campaigns. They may not be used for programs furthering religious doctrine.
