Supporting Our Community of Friends and Neighbors

The Rotary Club of South Pasadena gives grants to eligible organizations at the beginning of each calendar year. Funding for these grants come from the proceeds of our annual Rotary fundraiser “Taste of South Pasadena”.

All nonprofits in our region supporting local efforts are encouraged to apply for a Community

Service Grant. The Rotary Club is especially interested in making awards to non-profits that

provide volunteers with opportunities for community service. Please check back after

October 1, 2021 for new grant application instructions and deadlines. 

The grant application process is now closed.

Shawn, owner of TeaMorrow expresses his gratitude for their emergency grant.
