Rotary Foundation Grants

Be the first to know!

The Rotary Foundation District and Global Grants committee identifies and assists other club committees with the process of applying for District and Global Grants from The Rotary Foundation. A District Grant is a Rotary Foundation grant which matches Rotary Club funds to support projects that benefit local communities, fund scholarships and exchange teams or an international project. Projects are funded on a 2-for-1 match basis; that is, the district matches $2 for each $1 spent in club funds. Our club could have more than one grant request, but total project reimbursements must not exceed more than $3,000 per club. District Grants can be used for a wide variety of club projects that further the six avenues of focus of Rotary International, including sending students to RYLA, low-cost construction, scholarships, projects promoting Rotary, and so on. Global Grants support large international activities with sustainable, measurable outcomes in Rotary’s areas of focus. Grant sponsors form international partnerships that respond to real community needs. Global grants can fund a variety of activities including humanitarian projects, scholarships for graduate-level academic studies, and vocational training teams, which are groups of professionals who travel abroad either to teach local professionals about a particular field or to learn more about their own. The minimum budget for a Global Grant activity is $30,000. The Foundation’s World Fund provides a minimum of $15,000 and maximum of $200,000. Clubs and districts contribute District Designated Funds (DDF) and/or cash contributions that the World Fund matches. DDF is matched at 100% and cash is matched at 50%. In order for our club to participate in Rotary Foundation grants, it is required to have at least one representative from this committee attend the annual Grants Management Seminar and the club president signs a Memorandum of Understanding. The Grant Management Seminar is offered at the District Training Assembly in May.
