The Rotary Club of Dubois County has announced the opening of the club’s grant cycle for nonprofit community organizations in Dubois County.
Interested nonprofit groups can access the online application at www.duboiscountyrotary.com (found under the “About Our Club,” then “Community Grants” link) or on the club’s Facebook page. Applications are due by March 22, 2024. The club’s grants committee will review all applications submitted and plans to announce the awards in May, with funds released in August 2024. Applications for up to $16,000 in funding will be accepted, and they must match one of Rotary’s seven areas of focus: Promoting Peace, Fighting Disease, Providing Clean Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, Saving Mothers and Children, Supporting Education, Growing Local Economies or Protecting the Environment.

- Southeast Dubois School Corporation to assist with Emergency Backpacks
- Memorial Hospital and the Women’s and Infants Unit to provide a box of diapers and a book to each family of a newborn
- Southwest Dubois School Corporation to support Fuertes Together
