Rotary Club of Ojai Community Grants -- 2022

The Rotary Club of Ojai will distribute profits from our fundraiser "Taste of Ojai "to local 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations serving Ojai Valley residents. This year we are pleased to donate $30,000 back to the community.  

The focus of this year’s awards will be on community building projects in the Ojai Valley. The Rotary Club of Ojai seeks to help revitalize our community: much has been "on pause" during the Covid epidemic.  How would the proposed project serve and increase a sense of community in the Ojai Valley?

Organizations which provide for charitable needs in the Ojai Valley are encouraged to apply.

Please submit completed applications to

The deadline for applications is extended to March 5th, 2022.

The Rotary Club of Ojai joined a club in Bend, Oregon and a club in Gaborone, Botswana to provide a $30,000 global scholarship grant in order for a young doctor in Africa to complete her advanced training to become a certified surgeon. She will be only the fourth fully certified surgeon in the public health system that services over 1.8 million people in Botswana.
