DISTRICT GRANTS

WHAT ARE DISTRICT GRANTS?

District grants fund smaller, short-term activities that address needs in both your local community and communities worldwide. Each district gets to choose which activities it will fund with these grants.
You can use district grants to fund a variety of activities, including:
  • Humanitarian projects, including service travel and disaster recovery efforts
  • Scholarships for any level, length of time, location, or area of study
  • Vocational training of any team size or timespan 
Districts and Clubs must be qualified before they can administer district grants. 


HOW DO I APPLY FOR A DISTRICT GRANT? 

To apply for a district grant, please submit your funding request on the application form provided on this website, directly to your District Rotary Foundation Grants Chair (and not The Rotary Foundation), which administers and distributes the grant funds.

Applications from Clubs for grants for the 2017-18 Rotary year must be submitted by 3rd April 2017. The Word document for your Application is in the "Download" area on the District Homepage.

 

HOW ARE DISTRICT GRANTS FUNDED?

Districts may use up to 50 percent of their District Designated Fund to receive one District Grant annually. Districts receive this funding as a lump sum, which they can then distribute to the various clubs that were successful in application for a district grant.
 

Global Grants

WHAT ARE GLOBAL GRANTS?  

 

Global grants support large international activities with sustainable, measurable outcomes in one or more of the six areas of focus.
Global grants must:
  • Be an international partnership between a Rotary club or district in the country where the activity takes place and a Rotary club or district outside of that country
  • Be sustainable and include plans for long-term success after the global grant funds have been spent
  • Include measurable goals that are demonstrated through progress reports
  • Align with one of our six areas of focus
  • Respond to real community needs
  • Include active participation from both Rotarians and community members
  • Have a minimum budget of US$30,000
  • Meet the eligibility requirements in the grants terms and conditions
You can use global grants to fund:
  • Humanitarian projects that support the goals of one or more of the areas of focus
  • Scholarships for graduate-level academic studies that relate to one or more of the areas of focus
  • Vocational training teams, which are groups of professionals traveling abroad either to learn more about their profession or teach local professionals about a particular field

HOW DO I APPLY FOR A GLOBAL GRANT?

The Rotary Foundation accepts global grant applications on a rolling basis throughout the year. Before a district or club can apply for a grant, it has to complete the qualification process. Once your club or district is qualified, you can apply for a global grant through the online tool.

HOW ARE GLOBAL GRANTS FUNDED?

Global grants are funded with a combination of District Designated Funds or cash contributions and matching funds from The Rotary Foundation’s World Fund. The World Fund will match 100 percent of District Designated Funds and/or 50 percent of cash contributions. The minimum award amount from the World Fund is US$15,000, which means that the minimum project budget is $30,000.
