One hundred percent of the fundraising dollars raised by the Rotary Club of West Springfield are invested locally and globally to meet community needs.  This is accomplished through a number of initiatives, but primarily through the club's Community Grants Program.  Every spring, applications will be accepted from eligible organizations, with approved grants presented at a club meeting in June.
Awards are prioritized based on requests which demonstrate the maximum benefit to the greatest number of people, with preference given to organizations that support the West Springfield community.  Priority is also given to requests that fund capital improvements, provide continuous benefits to the community, and those which further the ideals and goals of Rotary.
