Variety Club is a non-profit organization committed to serving special needs children.
Variety Club's primary focus is brick and mortar projects, equipment and other tangible items. Agencies that provide care, treatment, activities and shelter to critically ill, underprivileged, handicapped, abused, at-risk and other deserving children are also considered for support from Variety Club. Administrative needs and other intangibles will not be considered for funding.
To receive a grant, your organization must be located in Iowa or a surrounding community, and must be an accredited tax-exempt 501(c)(3) children's organization.
Grant Review Process
The Variety Club Board of Directors form subcommittees and assign a liaison to each request. The liaison will contact your organization in late July or early August to follow up on your request. The review may be held over the phone or in person. Your liaison will collect data and report to the subcommittee. Your organization may then be asked to make a short presentation to the subcommittee.
The subcommittees will make recommendations to the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors. Final approval of all grant requests will be made by the full Board of Directors of the Variety Club of Iowa.
