The RCFC Community Grants Committee looks for innovative projects and services that respond to community issues, address local needs, are available to the community as a whole or large segment in need, and will improve community members' lives. The Rotary Club of Fort Collins (RCFC) plans to award financial grants to deserving 501(c)(3) non-profit service organizations located in the Fort Collins area.

The Rotary Club of Fort Collins awards Community Grants spread out throughout the year in four (4) categories:  Arts & Culture, Youth Programs, Education Programs, and Health & Welfare. Non-profit service organizations may apply in more than one category but are encouraged to apply in the category that matches their primary mission statement or the primary purpose of their service and/or project. For the second quarter of 2022, the category will be Youth Programs.
