Foundation of the
Rotary Club of White Plains
Funds raised by the
Club for charitable purposes are held in the Foundation of the Rotary Club
of White Plains ("RCWP Foundation"), and disbursed when authorized by the Trustees under direction of the RCWP
Board of Directors.
Since 2013-2014, we are not accepting grant applications.
In the past, qualified charitable organizations have requested grants from the RCWP Foundation
by completing a detailed application form and submitting it by December 31st of each year.
The Board of Directors has decided to implement a new process for awarding grants to community service organizations, so there is no
application submission process in effect right now. The Board is revising the policy, and may decide to
resume a modified grant practice.
