About Parole Rotary Foundation Grants

The Parole Rotary Foundation was established by the Rotary Club of Parole (Annapolis) to support programs that focus on the needs of our local community in light of the Club’s vision: “We will make a positive difference for youth today, so they will make a difference tomorrow.” The Foundation is primarily funded by member donations and club fundraising activities.
The grant program supports 501(c) (3) organizations in Anne Arundel County that focus on education, health, and welfare for families and children.
The Parole Rotary Foundation is soliciting grant applications for its 2024-25 grant year. Awards may be up to $3000. All grant applications are due by midnight on January 26, 2024.
