The Finance Committee of Hortulus reviews and evaluates requests from 501(c)(3) organizations seeking financial support of $1,000 or more from our Charitable Civic Fund. Organizations and their projects must be consistent with our Mission Statement and have a Hortulus sponsor. The Finance Committee makes recommendations to the Executive Board of Hortulus and to the General Membership of the Club for approval.
Grants are made only to 501(c)(3) organizations. Priority is given to organizations in the Greenwich area. Grants are not made to operating funds or endowments. Recipients will be required to send a detailed follow-up report indicating how the funds were spent and to be available upon request to host an on-site visit. The funding of grants is conditional and an inability to utilize the funds according to guidelines within the time frame could result in our rescinding the grant.
If your organization would like to be considered for a grant from the Hortulus Charitable Civic Fund, please complete the following form, attaching required materials, and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 31.
A response letter will be sent to all applicants and grants will be awarded in May.
