The Foundation board will consider the following questions, among others, when reviewing grant applications: How will the grant advance the purpose of the Ledyard Rotary Foundation? How worthy is the cause of the organization? How compelling is the specific request? What is the credibility of the organization and its board/volunteers/staff? How many people will be served? What geographic area will be served?
