The Elk Rapids Lions Club will be accepting Organizational Grant Request applications only in the Fall for community projects that support the Club's mission of "serving the community."  Applications will only be accepted if they are received between October 1st and October 31st. These Organizational Grant Requests should be from Elk Rapids and surrounding areas.

This system gives us the ability to proactively fundraise over and above our annual events as we become aware of special community needs.

Organizations should contact the club's Grant Committee Chair, Tami Valenzuela, to request an application or more information by email: or call 231-735-6799.  You can also download here an application to your computer.
