The Rotary Club of Mystic Grant Application Process and Instructions

The Rotary Club of Mystic provides hundreds of volunteer hours to many community services and, through its annual fundraising events, returns over $20,000 to the local area in form of grants and scholarships.
Our largest fundraiser is the Mystic Half Marathon. This amazing half marathon course showcases Connecticut’s premier waterfront town. Starting and finishing at the Olde Mistick Village, the tour will bring you past the Mystic Seaport, over the Mystic Draw Bridge, along stunning River Road, and down classic New England country roads.
The next scheduled Mystic Half Marathon is to be held in May 2017. The run has been approved and expanded for up to 2,000 runners.
In addition, funds are raised by selling Del’s Lemonade at the Mystic Arts Festival and the Taste of Mystic. All net proceeds from these fundraising events are distributed to local charities and scholarships supported by the Club.
Twice a year, the Mystic Club donates funds to local non-profit organizations, primarily serving the Groton, Mystic, Stonington area. Organizations are encouraged to apply for grants from the Contributions Committee in the range of $250 to $1,000. Applications are reviewed on the basis of need, number of clients being benefited and the area served.
(All applications, regardless of amount requested, will be assessed individually).
