Grants Program

 

The Rotary Club of Victor Harbor has announced a grants program to assist community groups and organisations to improve the wellbeing of people within the Victor Harbor community.

A total of $10,000 has been allocated for the 2016/17 program which will be offered in two rounds – November and February.

Expressions of interest for the second round are open from February 1st through to the 28th of February.  Applications for small amounts are encouraged as the club is keen to assist as many projects and organisations as possible.
