In May 2020, the Rotary Club of Portland (RCP) will celebrate the 110th anniversary of its founding.  As a commitment to a second century of service, the club intends to fund a worthy project in the community addressing a high profile community need.  The purpose of this Request for Proposal is to identify and select a project from an organization willing to commit both time and resources in a strategic relationship with RCP.  RCP would expect to complete the project with the non-profit in approximately 2019 through 2021, depending on the scope of such project.


Traditionally, the RCP has supported children, at-risk youth, people who are ill, disabled, elderly, or survivors of domestic violence.  RCP will also consider a project to address homelessness, especially if it focuses on the above-referenced groups.


RCP’s contribution to the selected project is expected to be approximately $500,000, not including funds contributed by the non-profit. Proposed projects should:

  1. Address a high-profile community need
  2. Require a relationship with another non-profit or governmental institution who can administer and maintain the project after completion
  3. Potential focus on one or more of these areas:  youth, at-risk or homeless youth and/or families
  4. Require no more than $500,000 contribution from RCP members
  5. Potentially require more than $500,000 for a total budget, but the non-profit will fundraise for the remaining funds
  6. Take place within the Portland metropolitan area
  7. Be a capital project (should include funds for operations related to such capital project)
  8. Potentially allow for RCP to apply for non-Rotary community foundation grants

The proposing entity(ies) must have an IRS 501(c)(3) status or be a government entity.  Additional factors the RCP will consider include the number of people served by the project; the overall

effectiveness of the project; and the efficiency and effectiveness

of the partner organization.


The first step in the process is submission of your Proposal (the “Proposal”), which is due by January 15, 2018.  The RCP will screen the Proposals and select three to six finalists in the Spring of 2018.  The RCP will then request from these finalists more detailed information (if needed).  The RCP intends to select the final project from such finalists’ proposals.

The following types of requests are not eligible for Project 2020:

    • Annual fund drives
    • Funding of endowments external to the RCP
    • Veterans, labor, religious, athletic or fraternal groups, except when these groups provide needed services to the community at large
    • General operating fund advertising
    • Fundraising events (such as dinners and walkathons)
    • Political organizations, ballot measure campaigns or candidates for public office, organizations that discriminate against individuals on the basis of race, national origin, veteran status, religion, creed, marital status, age, disability, sex, gender or sexual orientation
    • Conferences, symposiums, festivals, conventions, events, team sponsorships or user fees
    • Bridge grants, debt retirement or operational deficits of schools or other non-profits
    • Travel expenses
    • Salaries of employees, with the exception of costs relating directly to the funded project
    • “Pass through” organizations or private foundations
    • Athletic teams, bands and choirs except for those targeting youth, the disadvantaged or disabled
    • Grant requests for production of audio, film or video
