Requests for Funding

As a prominent community service organisation the Rotary Club of Comox Valley get a lot of requests for funding fomr local initiatives. While we would love to assist every worthwhile cause or plan we hear, it simply is not possible. To better direct our efforts our club has decided to focus on 3 areas – youth-at-risk, the environment, and local food security. That having been said, we do make exceptions to these areas of focus for the right cause.
