Suspension:

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.

Trustees:

Steve Holden (class of 2018)
Paul Bergins (class of 2020)
Michael Graessle (class of 2022)
