Vinings Rotary Charity Fund

2016 Vinings Down Hill 5k/Run for the Kids

Grant Application/Nomination

Vinings Rotary Charity Fund, Inc. (the "Fund") is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and a designated beneficiary of the 2016 Vinings Down Hill 5k/Run for the Kids ("Race"). The Fund will accept applications for grants from children’s charities or for children’s charities beginning October 1, 2016. Applications may be obtained from during this period of time. To be considered for a grant, a complete application must be received no later than December 8, 2016 by the Fund by mailing the completed application to:

Steve Hughes

3395 Stillhouse Road

Atlanta, Georgia 30339

The Fund will review all applications, but is not required to award funds to any applicant. Should some or all Race proceeds not be awarded through this application process, the Fund may dispense these proceeds to children’s charities in its discretion.

The review and consideration of the applications will be completed by December 31, 2016. Awards through this process will be made and the beneficiaries notified no later than February 1, 2017. Applications that are not funded from Race proceeds may be retained by the Fund and may be considered for funding from unrestricted monies of the Fund. Applicants that are not funded through Race proceeds will be notified of this status.

Applicants must complete (1) the one page application and (2) include your tax exempt letter and (3) tax form 990. You may download a grant application by clicking on "Grant Application" on the left column. Applicants may attach supplemental information to their application with the understanding that this information may not be reviewed or considered.

Grants will be awarded to organizations whose use of these funds will benefit children. Applications should be typed or very legibly handwritten. The number of applications granted will depend, in part, upon the amount of monies raised. A number of worthy charities will be applying. Unfortunately, it is likely that some charities will not receive a grant, in order to make a meaningful contribution to other applicants.
