GLOBAL GRANT REQUIREMENTS
Rotary members must be actively involved in all global grants, and all projects must comply with the Terms and Conditions for Rotary Foundation District Grants and Global Grants (the MOU your current President and President-Elect sign at the qualification seminar).
 
YOUR PROJECT MUST:
  • Have a long-term, sustainable impact Include activities that clearly fit into one of Rotary’s Areas of Focus invest at least $30,000 within a community
  • Address an important need identified by the community itself by the Host Rotary Club (not a D7040 club)
  • Strengthen the community’s capacity to meet its own needs
 
YOU MUST:
  • Apply for a Global grant through Rotary.org after District Grants Chair, PDGBette Miller, gives you the go-ahead
  • Actively involve the benefiting community in the project
  • Partner with a club in another country  (your club is the International Partner)
  • Qualify your club for global grants every year (attend any of the above seminar dates)
  • Act as primary sponsor of no more than 10 active global grants at a time
  • Develop a project plan that includes a budget and a financial management plan
  • Measure progress toward the outcome as evidenced in your reports
  • Stay up-to-date in reporting for all active grants (annual reports and Final Report within 60 days of conclusion)
 
ELIGIBLE ACTIVITIES
  • Global grants support international activities within Rotary’s areas of focus:
  • Humanitarian projects provide sustainable, measurable outcomes that address real community needs.
  • Vocational training builds skills within a community through targeted educational programs or by supporting teams of professionals who travel abroad to build their own capacity or the capacity of the community they visit. Learn more about vocational training teams.
  • Scholarships fund international graduate-level study by people seeking a career within an area of focus. Contact PDGKatie Burke (District Scholarship Chair) for more information.
POINTS TO REMEMBER If you’re thinking about applying for a global grant and your club is qualified to do so, be sure that your project meets the criteria for global grants. Global grant activities must be supported by the benefiting community and led by Rotary members, and they must have measurable results and an impact that will continue after the grant funds have been spent.
