Over the years the Rotary Club of Northfield has supported many organizations doing important work in a range of areas. Each year the Club requires organizations to submit a Grant Application, which will then be reviewed by the Community Grants Committee. The Club will be awarding grants at our annual Pie for Brunch celebration on April 2, 2016.

The application deadline is:  March 1, 2016 (must be post-marked by this date)
