District grants help to extend the ability of our clubs
in Doing Good in their Communities.
Rotary Foundation District Grants are block grants designed to support smaller dollar amount local and international projects. District grants offer the flexibility to respond quickly to immediate needs or to plan projects with clubs locally or in other countries. These grants can be used for a wide variety of activities as outlined in the RI and district documents. For international projects, Clubs are encouraged but not required to partner with a local Host District/Club. Furthermore Clubs may be required to provide additional documentation and have greater financial management responsibilities for District Grant - International Projects, at the discretion of the District TRF Chair.
District Grant Application Forms will be posted on the district website. Dates to remember are:
- For each program year that a club is applying for a District Grant, clubs will be required to attend (prior to March 1) a designated District Rotary Foundation Training Seminar to be eligible for access to District Grants.
- Program year applications for District Grants are due April 1 each year for the forthcoming program year.
The applications for District Grants will be reviewed by the District Grant Committee. Upon successful review, the District Grants Committee will submit recommendations for approval to the program year District Governor (DG) and District Rotary Foundation Chair (DRFC) for final submission to TRF.
Successful applicants will be notified in June if their grant(s) were included in District Block Grant request. Subject to Rotary Foundation approval of the District Block Grant requested, district grant funds will be sent to sponsoring club in August.
