My Rotary - The Learning Centre Presentations that provide a great overview and key information about each topic.
Global Grants
Global grants support large international activities with sustainable, measurable outcomes in Rotary’s areas of focus. By working together to respond to real community needs, clubs and districts strengthen their global partnerships.
Read A Guide to Global Grants for detailed information on planning your project, applying for a grant to fund it, carrying it out, and reporting on your progress and outcome.

District Grants
District grants fund small-scale, short-term activities that address needs in your community and communities abroad. Each district chooses which activities it will fund with these grants.

  1. Grant Certification training is required in order to apply for a District or a Global Grant.  As per RI policy one member from a club must be trained annually but it is recommended to have more participants if possible.   Additionally, the person who takes the training must be the person who writes the grant.
  2. Clubs are then required to have a Rotary Foundation Memorandum of Understanding in place for each Rotary Year. Please refer to the Club Qualification MOU Worksheet for additional information.
  3. Club Foundation Chair entered in ClubRunner (and/or via My Rotary).
  4. Club Foundation Goals entered in Rotary Club Central
  5. The grant deadline has been moved up to June 30th, which has brought our District in line with the rest of the Rotary world.  This means clubs need to plan their grants before the end of the Rotary year.
The District Foundation Committee Chairs are available to provide information, answer your questions, assist your club with completing grant applications AND make presentations on The Rotary Foundation programs to your members, club executive and/or Foundation Committee.

Foundation Dinner  
Delegation allows some club and district leaders to share their level of Grant Centre access with other Rotary members, allowing them to view, edit, and authorize applications. This way, clubs and districts can customize the Grant Centre to meet their needs more efficiently. 
For more on grants, the guide How to Use the Grant Centre includes information about authorizing a global grant application, adding bank account information, and reporting on a global grant.


Effective July 1, 2018, all global grant applications will need to include a documented community needs assessment with the results noted in the online application. The Community Needs Assessment Form is a great resource.

Rotary Community Corps (RCC) is a group of people who aren’t Rotarians but who partner with Rotary clubs to improve their communities. Working with an RCC to carry out a community assessment gives everyone in your community the chance to be heard. Learn how the Rotary Club of Cartagena de India in Colombia formed an RCC to assess and rebuild their community after severe flooding. 
Your district international service chair can refer you to local experts through the District Resource Network to help you carry out assessments and develop projects that have greater impact and sustainability.
