Each year the Rotary Club of Schaumburg/Hoffman Estates Charitable Foundation provides grants in an effort to strengthen our network of support, addressing basic needs, empowering those in need towards our ultimate goal: Eradicate Community Poverty. The Rotary Club of Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates has worked hard to raise funds through year-long fundraising efforts.  Now we would like to award community grants to not-for-profit organizations which are either located within or serve the citizens of Schaumburg and/or Hoffman Estates, Illinois.  
The Rotary Club Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates Charitable Foundation raises funds to further the goals of Rotary International and of our Local Club which is to Eradicate Community Poverty.  This year we would like to provide funding in three specific areas:
LITERACY FOR ALL AGES (e.g. materials, classes, instruction for learning to read and comprehension)
NEEDS FOR CHILDREN (e.g. food, clothing, education, social / emotional / cognitive development)
ENRICHMENT FOR THOSE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS (e.g. job training, equipment providing independence)
  1. The following do NOT qualify for funding:
    • Contributions to scholarship funds for mainstream education.
    • Staff salaries / benefits unless specifically tied to a designated project
    • General fund
  2. Grants will range from $1,000 to $7,500 so please develop your request accordingly.
  3. Any organizations that propose a creative collaboration with another organization to leverage Rotary’s contribution to the project may be given special consideration.
We look forward to receiving your application.  Applications must be received via postal mail or email by March 1, 2024. Notifications of grant awards will be made by May 1, 2024.
