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.
For more info click HERE.

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.
For more info click HERE.
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.
