The Rotary Club of Salisbury is seeking applications for its fifth annual 3-Point Initiative, a grant with awards ranging from $1,000 to $7,000, which will be awarded to a local non-profit(s) in March 2021 that locally promotes Responsibility, Integrity and Academic Achievement to area youth. The deadline to apply is Friday, November 6, 2020.
Funding for this grant comes from the Rotary Club of Salisbury and its partnering organizations. Last year the Initiative was additionally supported by the Donnie Williams Foundation, the Richard and Patricia Hazel Charitable Fund, the Richard A. Henson Foundation and the First Shore Federal Savings and Loan Charitable Fund, to which each made a generous donation. Last year, the Rotary Club of Salisbury’s 3-Point Initiative raised and donated more than $40,000, an amount organizers hope to reach again this year.
501C3 organizations interested in applying must meet eligibility criteria that include being a government entity, faith-based organization or a non-profit public charity that supports programs for youth on the Lower Eastern Shore. A narrative is required detailing how the organization promotes the three tenets of the grant: responsibility, integrity and academic achievement.
The grant application is available on the Rotary Club of Salisbury website at www.RotarySalisbury.org. Questions may be directed to 3-Point Initiative Chairman Terry Greenwood at 410-422-6124.
