About RSAMCC Community Grants
The Redstone Arsenal Military and Civilians’ Club (RSAMCC) is a volunteer organization that "salutes" those who have served our country and the DoD civilian community that supports them. We aim to foster good fellowship by providing educational, cultural, and enjoyable activities for our members. You can read more about our mission and goals here.
Throughout the year, our organization raises funds that we then give back to our community in a variety of ways. Our Community Assistance Grants are for non-profit organizations that host projects or events that directly support and honor active duty military, veterans, DoD civilians, and their families. We recognize we have an obligation to use our funds wisely, and to ensure that we donate to organizations that reflect our club’s values, practice good stewardship, and meet the needs of the local military and DoD civilian community.
Who Can Apply for Community Assistance Grants
There are many worthy causes that deserve support and our club funds are limited; therefore, we use the following criteria in making funding decisions:
All organizations requesting a Community Assistance Grant must meet the following criteria. If the organization's project/event does not meet these minimum requirements, their funding application will not be considered.
The organization or group making the request must be non-profit/not-for-profit. Community Assistance Grants are not awarded to individuals or to for-profit businesses.
The requested funds must be used for a specific project or event that will occur or begin no earlier than July 1, 2023, and conclude no later than June 30, 2024. Please see the Limitations section below for further details.
The project/event for which funds are being requested must be located within a 50-mile radius of Redstone Arsenal, Huntsville, Alabama. The requesting organization hosting the project/event may be headquartered beyond that radius, but the event or project itself must be within 50 miles of the Arsenal.
The project/event must support, honor, or promote military, veterans, DoD civilians, and/or their families. The requesting organization's overall mission does not have to specifically focus on the military, DoD civilians, or their respective family members, just the project/event for which funds are being requested.
The RSAMCC Community Assistance Grants selection committee gives priority consideration to projects/events that:
are projects/events of a registered 501(c) organization;
meet practical, tangible needs;
impact multiple people, not just one or a few individuals.
Grant requests will NOT be provided to/for the following:
Normal operating expenses, including salaries, overhead, office supplies, or advertising.
Completed expenditures or events/projects that occurred or concluded prior to July 1, 2023.
Goods or services that could be obtained using appropriated funds.
Political parties or activities.
Grants are Not Guaranteed
A reminder that our funds are limited. Organizations that meet all the above criteria will receive higher priority in the selection process, but are not guaranteed to receive a grant (in part or in full) simply because they meet the criteria.
Obligations of Grant Recipients
Funds donated are to be used for the sole purpose for which they were requested and may not be used to fund other needs not identified in the original request. Funds must be deposited no later than August 31, 2023. If any portion of received funding is no longer needed for the requested purpose, unused funds must be returned to RSAMCC.
Deadline: Friday, March 31, 5:00 p.m. CT
Completed applications must be submitted and received no later 5:00 p.m. CT on Friday, March 31, 2023, or they will be rejected.
