Grants from The Rotary Foundation

One month into our new Rotary year, club and district leaders are busy working on new applications for District and Global grants. For those new to these service opportunities, there are a number of available resources. In addition to taking short courses in the Learning Center, there are quick outlines and links for each kind of grant.

District grants can fund local and global service activities. 95% of districts use district grants to support local projects and about a third use district grants to support activities that are not eligible under global grants, including the construction of schools and low-cost shelters and scholarships for secondary school and undergraduate students. Learn more about District Grants and how they can help your district change the world.

Global grants support large international projects with sustainable, measurable outcomes in Rotary’s areas of focus. These larger (>$30,000) grants support Humanitarian projects, post-graduate scholarships, and Vocational Training Teams. Download A Guide to Global Grants for help and guidance in planning projects, applying for a grant, implementing the project, and reporting on its outcome.
