Disaster Response Grant
To have your club project considered for inclusion in the District application, the Eligibility Requirements (1-4) listed above must be met. Please note the deadline is May 31, 2020.
 
The District Foundation Director and 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.
 
 
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.
