You might ask yourself -- should our Rotary Club apply for a Rotary Foundation Global Grant -- and what do we need to do to be successful. Should we do it? 

 

The answer is YES as long as you understand this is a 3-year to 5-year assignment and that you will need partners involved in the program.

 

Fifteen years ago when I joined the Rotary Club of Olympia, my club wanted to do a Water Project in Malawi. They asked me to lead the endeavor since I am a Water Engineer, a former State Grants Administrator, and at the time, a new member.  

Many Rotarians understand the link between becoming a Paul Harris Fellow and our support of Rotary International. 

 

It is part of our commitment to the ‘Four-Way Test’ and ‘Service Above Self’.   

 

We hear about "Our Business is Humanitarian". But do our personal financial gifts to The Rotary Foundation (TRF) really make much of a difference?

 

Let's all celebrate 100 in Atlanta! June 10-14, 2017

 

As we celebrate “Rotary Serving Humanity” through the leadership of RI President, John Germ, we have a unique opportunity to come together with Rotarians throughout the world in Atlanta, Georgia, June 10 to 14, 2017. 

 

It is a significant year in Rotary --- the year-long celebration of the 100th birthday of the Rotary Foundation will lead many to the Atlanta convention---the city where it all began. This year due to the proximity of the Rotary International Conference, we hope to see a large District 5020 delegation.

 

The District 5020 Grant Committee is offering a grant opportunity for clubs to fund summer literacy or nutrition programs targeted to low income, free or reduced lunch students. 

Grants may start at the beginning of summer break in 2017.  The grant will be reimbursed after all reporting is completed during Rotary Year (RY) 2017-2018.  Notification of grant award will occur prior to the start of RY 2017-2018.
