April Budget



Aug Sept




The President of Louisville Rotary shall appoint a Community Grant Committee to review the grant proposals. 

The Grant committee will work closely with the Treasurer to determine the amount of money to give as grants for the current calendar year.  The committee will suggest this amount to the club.

During the May business meeting the club will vote on the amount.    

We will then advertise the grants via the Louisville Herald, and Facebook.

From Sept. 15 thru Oct. 15th we will accept grant applications.

Late in Oct. the committee will meet and decide the finalists and how much each will receive..

At business meeting in November, the club will see the list of finalists and either vote it up or down.  Upon approval of the club members, the President shall notify each organization of their grant award with a letter stating the amount of the award. President will also notify those not receiving funds.

The chairman will follow up to make sure the the Grant checks will be written before December 20th of each year simply to keep the income and the expenses in the same accounting year.
