The Club Grant program enables the Foundation to assist Clubs implementing NEW projects in their community!

This Program was announced in July 2008 to provide $500 matching grants for NEW projects by Optimist Clubs.

Guidelines for the 2017 Club Grant Program:

Any Adult Club served by OIF is eligible to apply for a $500 grant for a NEW project of the Club. The project must start and finish between April 2017 and March 2018. Grants to Clubs will be matching grants, with Clubs expected to show plans for the matching the money and reporting the results. Clubs will complete follow-up reports.

Review Process:

The Review Committee will strive to achieve geographical balance and programming diversity in awarding the grants and will support projects that assist children and foster diversity, and directly involve Optimist Member’s participation.
