Rotary Club of Northfield

$1,000+ Funding Requests Process and Guidelines

The Rotary Club of Northfield receives many requests throughout the year for funding. These requests typically come from charitable organizations and individuals seeking to advance a particular cause or project, either locally or on a larger scale. The club’s Board of Directors is tasked with reviewing such requests when the amount requested exceeds $1,000. Funding requests that do not exceed $1,000 are received and processed by a separate Local Donations committee. For more information about making a funding request to the Local Donations committee, please visit the following site:
