It is the time of the year for Local Grant nominations, applications, and awards.  Please review the documents to the left to participate in the 2018-2019 Local Grant Process.
Important details and deadlines:
  • 12 Service Organizations who serve the Edina Community will be awarded Grants
  • $12,000 in Local Grants to be awarded in 2018-2019
  • $500-$3000 = The amount of each Local Grant
  • February 1, 2019: the deadline for Edina Morningside Rotarians to propose a Service Organization
  • March 8, 2019: deadline for Grant Applications to be submitted by Service Organizations
  • March 26, 2019: Edina Morningside Members will vote for Local Grant Recipients
Here's how it works:
  1. EMRC raises money from various fundraisers throughout the year - The Patrick Kennedy Golf Tournament and the Annual Beer Tasting are two of our largest fundraisers. 
  2. The following year, a portion of the proceeds from these fundraising events are distributed to local organizations. The organizations are nominated by our EMRC members, the organizations submit a grant application and then every member of our club gets a vote to determine who will receive funding from our club.  
  3. You can read more about the local grant process and about past grant recipients by clicking the links to the left. 
  4. A Summary of the 2018-2019 Grant Applications is available to the left.  Members of EMRC please see the email that was sent to you to cast your vote.  Votes must be submitted by Friday, April 5.
What is Next?
  • On Tuesday, April 9, we will present the top 12 organizations as voted on by EMRC members at the club meeting.
  • On Thursday, April 11, the EMRC Board will assign grant amounts to each of the 12 selected organizations.
  • On Tuesday, April 16, we will share the results of the 2018-2019 local grant gifts with the club during our regular club meeting.
