The Rotary Club of Wilton has opened its 2018 grant application period to help meet the important, charitable needs of the community. Twice a year the Rotary Club of Wilton distributes community grants to very deserving non-profit service organizations in the local Wilton area.

The Rotary Club of Wilton Grants Committee looks for innovative projects and services that respond to community issues, address local needs, are available to the community as a whole or to a large segment in need, and will improve community members’ lives. All applications and supporting documentation must be received by Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018.

The application can be found on the Wilton Rotary Club website. For additional information please email the Rotary Club president, Christene Freedman.

The Rotary Club of Wilton is a welcoming and diverse group of 30 volunteers who primarily support the local community through hands-on projects, fundraising activities, local scholarships and charitable grants. Each year, Rotary Club of Wilton also participates in international service projects. The club meets at 12:15 p.m. each Friday at Rolling Hills Country Club and is open to community members interested in learning more. Over the past 35 years, the club has contributed over $500,000 to the Wilton community and to international projects. Local organizations that have benefited include Wilton Social Services, the Wilton Food Pantry, and various non-profit organizations. Recently, the Rotary Club of Wilton instituted the Peace Pole Project, throughout the community.
