Crab Feast Bounty Up for Grabs

Rotary accepts grant requests thru Nov. 30

      Crabbing has slowed down for the season, but the benefits of this bounty are still being felt.

         Funds raised at the Rotary Club of Annapolis’ giant annual crab feast are now available for organizations that support the local community. If you’re a local non-profit and in need of funds, consider applying for a Crab Feast grant.

         Splitting last year’s $45,000 available for grants were 21 organizations, including Annapolis Green, the Anne Arundel County Food Bank and Hospice of the Chesapeake Foundation.

         “We turned right around and used our $1,865 from the 2018 Crab Feast fund on the 2019 Crab Feast Zero-Waste program,” says Annapolis Green’s Elvia Thompson. “That has included changing what is purchased to the kinds of material that are recyclable to arranging for waste disposal and pickup of recyclables and compostables.”

         Rotary asks that organizations seeking grants apply for the actual project cost, accepted in any amount up to the maximum of $4,000. Grant requests are accepted through 5pm Nov. 30.

         Keep your responses to each question under 100 words and attach your 501(c)3 letter of determination to your application.

         Online applications are preferred, but mailed requests are accepted:
