The Rotary Club of Salisbury, in its 103rd year of service to the community, is seeking applications for its seventh annual  3-Point Initiative, a grant program with awards ranging from $1,000 to $5,000.  Funds will be awarded to local non-profits in early 2023 that promote Responsibility, Integrity, and Academic Achievement to area youth. The deadline to apply is Friday, November 11, 2022.
Funding for this grant comes from the Rotary Club of Salisbury and its partnering organizations that include: the Donnie Williams Foundation, the Richard and Patricia Hazel Charitable Fund, the Richard A. Henson Foundation, First Shore Federal Savings and Loan Charitable Fund, and the Wooten Community Fund, each of which made a generous donation. The Rotary Club of Salisbury's 3-Point Initiative last year donated more than $40,000 to nine organizations.
501(C)(3) 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 written description is required detailing how the organization promotes the three tenets of the grant: responsibility, integrity, and academic achievement and how the money will be used.
The grant application is available in the Download section of this website.  Questions may be directed to 3-Point Initiative Chairman Gus Lebois at GLebois0271@gmail.com or 443-859-3968.
