The Rotary Club of Hackensack provides small grants to non profit organizations serving the Hackensack community. Grants of up to $1,500 may be provided to a small number of selected organizations. To be eligible, an organization must be incorporated or legislatively established in the State of New Jersey. Organizations not based in Hackensack may apply for a grant if the project to be funded serves exclusively  the Hackensack community. The purpose of the Grant Program is to assist the non profit organization with a specific project. It is not designed to provide funding of the organization's basic operating budget.  Funding is limited to the purchase of equipment, materials, supplies and/or services necessary to implement the proposed project.  Funds may not be used to pay salaries but may be used to pay for contracted services.


Note: An organization is not eligible for a grant if it has received a grant in each of the previous three years
