What are district grants?
District grants fund smaller, short-term activities that address needs in both your local community and communities worldwide. Each district gets to choose which activities it will fund with these grants.
You can use district grants to fund a variety of activities, including:
- Humanitarian projects, including service travel and disaster recovery efforts
- Scholarships for any level, length of time, location, or area of study
- Vocational training of any team size or timespan
Districts must be qualified before they can administer district grants.
How do I apply for a district grant?
To apply for a district grant, please submit your funding request directly to your district (and not The Rotary Foundation), which administers and distributes the grant funds.
How are district grants funded?
Districts may use up to 50 percent of their District Designated Fund to receive one District Grant annually. Districts receive this funding as a lump sum, which they can then distribute to their clubs.
