District grants are available for community service projects as well as for small international projects less than $30,000. Global Grants are available for large projects in excess of $35,000.  The amount available changes from year to year depending on the funds that are returned from The Rotary Foundation. 

Here are examples of grants (i.e., Days for Girls in Cameroon, chicken coops in Panama; food packing in Monticello; bike kiosk in a New Ulm local park; Brooklyn Park & KPMG Reading Program (Non-Rotary Partnership); and City of Lakes GUA Reading Program)
