Each year, the District Governor, the Foundation Committee Chair and the Grants
Subcommittee Chair, determine, and allocate the uses for District Designated Funds (DDF)
received from The Rotary Foundation (TRF).
 
The District Grants Subcommittee (DGSC) then monitors and manages the distribution of
these funds, which assist the funding of club projects by way of grants.
The DGSC:
  • Assists the District’s clubs to develop local and international service projects
  • Informs Clubs about The Rotary Foundation Grant opportunities
  • Reviews District Grants for approval and payment
  • Assists Club applications for Global Grants prior to submitting the application to TRF
  • Maintains records of District Designated Fund allocations and Grant approvals encouraging
    a high level of stewardship over the Foundation Funds.
DGSC Chairman: Graham Richardson
 

DISTRICT GRANTS FOR CLUBS

Humanitarian Grants – Club District Grants (for Local and International projects) are made
available to clubs through the District Foundation Committee to support humanitarian projects
and scholarships. District Grant projects support the mission of The Rotary Foundation: “… to
enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement
of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.”

 

Local Project: $1,000 to $3,000 Matched $ for $ to Club contributions Minimum Project Size $2,000

International Project: $2,000 to $5,000 Matched $ for $ to Club contributions Minimum Project Size $4,000

The document required to apply for a Club District Grant for humanitarian projects can be downloaded
from the link:  

Humanitarian Grant projects should aim to complete by the end of the current Rotary year.

Low-Level Scholarship Grants –There are 10 Low-Level Scholarship Grants available to clubs in
this Rotary year. Each Scholarship Grant is $1,000 that is to be matched with a $1,000 contribution
from the applicant club.

The purpose and guidelines for applying for and administering these grants in conjunction
with the school involved are described in the “Guidelines for Low-Level Scholarship Grants”
attached to the Application Form. This form can be downloaded from the link:

Scholarship grant projects will normally complete toward the end of the school year for which they were presented.

Projects Not Complete by Year End – if your project will not complete by the end of the Rotary year
you must apply for pre-payment of your approved Grant in June. When the project is complete,
provide a Report as normal practice. Then, if half the eligible expenses are less than the pre-paid
Grant, the difference must be returned.

If the project is not closed by the end of May of the Rotary year after the year in which the
Grant was approved, the grant must be returned in full.

In either case, new Grant Applications of any type from the applicant club will not be approved
without the DRFC’s and DG’s agreement, until the outstanding project is closed.

To apply for pre-payment of your incomplete project, download the form from the link:

Reporting – Upon completion of a project, a Club District Grant Report is to be provided,
accompanied by copies of invoices/receipts that reconcile with the statement of expenditure
in the Report.. The required Report Form can be downloaded from one of the links:
