District 5060 Public Image Funding Program
 
Objectives:
To facilitate increased awareness/understanding of Rotary International and Rotary Clubs in District 5060 cities.
To encourage clubs to plan for (budget) and undertake Public Image (PI) initiatives.
 
Overview: In the 2016-2017 Rotary Year the District Governor has made funds available to help clubs carry out PI initiatives. Throughout the year clubs can request funding for these initiatives. Awards will be made twice a year. An effort will be made to support clubs on both sides of the border equally. Funds not awarded at milestones will be carried over to the next award period. Clubs may submit the same request more than once. Applications can be made after the initiative has been carried out (within reason). Advertising of fundraising events is not considered a PI initiative. Winning clubs must supply invoices prior to July 1, 2017.
