District Grants provide an opportunity for Rotarians to use District Designated Funds (DDF) to undertake projects in their own communities or in other countries. Administration of the program is by the Grants Committee of District 5750.

This year the initial deadline of is May 15, 2018 has been extended to June 1, 2018 to submit your district grants. Remember, the District will match on a 2 for 1 basis, so you can really extend your club dollars for a very worthy community project near you or even abroad.

 
The process is straightforward and the 3 primary forms that need to be submitted can be found on the left side of this page.
The 3 forms are:
  • Club Memorandum of Understanding – simply have the current President and the President Elect sign the last page.
  • Club Financial Management Plan Template – Enter your club name (2 locations) and date on the first page.
  • 2018-2019 District Grant Application – Complete the application and secure 2 signatures. Instructions are provided in the document. Remember, the club must contribute their own funds at a rate of 1/3 of the total grant amount. So, if a grant amounted to $3,000, the club would need to provide $1,000 and the District would award $2,000. Be sure to provide evidence of estimated costs, such as an estimate from a vendor or a screenshot of an online merchant.
These forms can be submitted to:

  • Enter club Annual Fund giving goal in Rotary Club Central.
  • Support the Rotary Foundation at least $50 per member.
  • Submit final reports for all open District Grants from prior or current year (217-2018). If the grant is not yet complete, a progress report is needed.
