GRANT REQUIREMENTS
Rotary members must be actively involved in all grants, and all projects must comply with the Terms and Conditions for Rotary Foundation District Grants and Global Grants (the MOU your current President and President-Elect sign at the qualification seminar).
 
YOUR PROJECT MUST:
  • Have a long-term, sustainable impact including activities that clearly fit into one of Rotary’s Areas of Focus; for Global Grants, an investment of at least $30,000 within a community is required.
  • Address an important need identified by the community itself by the Host Rotary Club (not a D7040 club) which is called the Community Assessment Tool.
  • Strengthen the community’s capacity to meet its own needs for years.
 
FOR GLOBAL GRANTS YOU MUST:
  • Have your club's Foundation Goals entered into Rotary Club Central for the current year
  • Apply for a Global grant through Rotary.org after District Grants Chair, PDGBette Miller, gives you the go-ahead
  • Actively involve the benefiting community in the project
  • Partner with a club in another country (your club is the International Partner)
  • Qualify your club for global grants every year (attend any of the above seminar dates) while the project is taking shape until the Final Report is approved by TRF.
  • Develop a project plan that includes a budget and a financial management plan
  • Measure progress toward the outcome as evidenced in your annual reports compared to the Community Assessment Tool submitted with your application
  • Stay up-to-date in reporting for all active grants (annual reports and Final Report within 60 days of conclusion)
ELIGIBLE ACTIVITIES:
Global grants support international activities within Rotary’s 7 areas of focus:
  • Humanitarian projects provide sustainable, measurable outcomes that address real community needs.
  • Vocational training builds skills within a community through targeted educational programs or by supporting teams of professionals who travel abroad to build their own capacity or the capacity of the community they visit. 
  • Scholarships fund international graduate-level study by people seeking a career within an area of focus. Contact District Rotary Scholarship Chair, Angela Wellman, for more information.  Applications are due no later than 15 April 2022.  Please select the Scholarship tab under Resources above on the right-hand side.  Every applicant must have a Rotary Club Endorsement after the club holds an in-peron interview.
  • Our District highly encourages key club members and the Project Lead to take the Learning Center webinar on rotary.org: Grant Management Seminar.
POINTS TO REMEMBER: If you’re thinking about applying for a global grant and your club is qualified to do so, be sure that your project meets the criteria for global grants. Global grant activities must be supported by the benefiting community and led by Rotary members of both clubs (Host and International), and they must have measurable results creating an impact that will continue after the grant funds have been spent, all based on the original Community Assessment Tool.
