The Rotary Club of Chaska values the work that local organizations accomplish on behalf of our community. Twice per year we conduct our charitable giving process, providing grants to local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. We review each organization’s request and evaluate it using a fair and equitable assessment process.
Organizations requesting a grant must complete an application and submit it to us via email or USPS. A committee reviews each request. We will award grants to selected organizations in November and June each year. 
  • The request must align with at least one of Rotary International’s six areas of focus:
    • Promote peace
    • Fight disease
    • Provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
    • Save mothers and children
    • Support education
    • Grow local economies
    • Protect the environment
  • The organization must benefit individuals and/or families that work or reside in or near Chaska.
  • Requests will be accepted year round, but we will review requests and make distributions two times each year: November and June.
  • Organizations are only eligible to receive funding from the Rotary Club of Chaska once every 12 months.
  • An application must be completed for all requests of $500 or more.
  • Requests for sponsorships or other types of assistance that are equal to $499 or less will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • Funding requests that benefit an individual, a political organization, or a religious group will not be considered.
  • All applicants will be required to submit proof of their 501(c)(3) status.
