Each year, the Rotary Club of Edina raises money at a fall fundraiser to support its projects and award grants. Each year, about $100,000 is raised for the Club’s service projects and local and international grants. 

The Foundation’s Community Service—Local Funding Committee favors grant requests for projects that are tangible and self-perpetuating, will be completed in Edina or a bordering community, create partnerships with other organizations, provide benefits to many and can be leveraged over time. 

After a grant application is submitted, it is assigned to a member of the committee for review. The committee makes recommendations to the Foundation’s Board of Directors, which makes the final decision on all awards. 

Recent grant recipients include 66 West, Alzheimer’s Association of Minnesota-North Dakota Chapter, Can Do Canines, City of Edina Communications & Technology Services Department, Cornerstone Advocacy Service, Edina Give And Go, Fraser, Hearts and Hands Minnesota, Inner City Christian Ministries, Minnesota Life College, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Oasis for Youth, Open Arms of Minnesota, Steve Rummer Hope Foundation, Whittier Wildflowers Preschool and YMCA Camp Ihduhapi. 
Two of the Foundation’s largest grants this year will be given to Edina Public Schools to plant trees on school grounds and the City of Edina’s Parks & Recreation Department to install a musical instrument or set of instruments at Rosland Park.
