WENATCHEE - Wenatchee North Rotary is seeking applications for an outlying grant from school or community youth athletic programs outside Wenatchee-East Wenatchee.
The grants, paid through proceeds from the North Central Washington Sports Awards, can be for worthwhile projects such as field or facility improvements, financial aid for student-athletes, or essential equipment that otherwise wouldn’t be provided and is beneficial to the athletic program as a whole.
In recent years, funds have been provided to the Oroville stadium press box construction project, Bridgeport running track rebuild, Tonasket Tiger Youth Athletics Camp, Okanogan Youth Football and Brewster field lighting.
Other beneficiaries include Manson’s STAR Program, Cashmere stadium renovation and Cashmere soccer field lighting.
Sports Awards Outlying Grants are typically for $1,000.
Easy to fill out application forms for this year are available by writing Wenatchee North Rotary, Sports Awards Outlying Grant Committee, P.O. Box 2722, Wenatchee, WA 98807, or by emailing Grants Chairman Greg Brown at email@example.com and indicating “Rotary Outlying Grant Request” as the subject line.
Be sure to include the organization that is making the request and the name and phone number of a contact person. The form will then be emailed, so please include an email address.
The completed form must be received by May 15 for consideration with the donation occurring at the 43rd NCW Sports Awards banquet on June 25.
