Richard Householder, who chairs the club’s charitable grants committee, notes that this year’s grants will focus on organizations that address basic human needs.

All applications are due by February 27, 2021. Applicants must be 501(c)3 organizations registered to operate in Knox County or Lincolnville. They must also be ready and able this year to start the project for which they seek funding. For complete details about the grants program, please visit and click on the Grants tab.
