From a Grant Recipient...


"As much as we value the funding generously provided to our group through the community project grant, it is even more important to us that this support comes from the Norwich Women's Club, given how much this community respects your organization. When people see that the Norwich Women's Club supports our cause, they will immediately take it more seriously."

Community Project Grants

Grants are funded each year by:

Proceeds from the Spring Gala usually held in March
Sales of the Town Directory
Member donations to the Community Project Fund

The NWC supports programs and projects that enhance educational, civic and cultural activities in Norwich.  
Applications for grants should be made before the

deadline of April 15, 2023.  Awards are made to organizations and individuals which are either located in Norwich or directly benefit Norwich residents.  Consideration is given to the numbers of people benefited by the project request, and an effort is made to balance awards across educational, civic and cultural activities. 

Partial awards may be granted, and past awards do not ensure future awards.
