The Vision of the Rotary Foundation through Grants
 

Throughout our District many clubs focus on helping people in their own community and throughout the world. In cooperation with our District and The Rotary Foundation, your Club has the ability to access grant funds to finance and carry out these humanitarian projects to improve the quality of life for those less fortunate.

Grants that are available to Rotary Clubs in District 6290 to help fund their humanitarian projects fall within the six areas of focus determined by the Rotary Foundation. 

These six areas of focus are:

  • Peace and conflict prevention/resolution

  • Disease prevention and treatment

  • Water and sanitation

  • Maternal and child health

  • Basic education and literacy

  • Economic and community development

We have three types of grants available:

District Local Grants - These grant requests are generally between $500 and $2,500 per club (or $3,500 per club if a collaborative project) and help to support a humanitarian project within your local club’s area. Matches for these grants are available from the District on a $1 to $1 basis.

District International Grants - These grant requests are generally between $1,000 and $5,000 per club to fund a project in another country. You must have support by an international (host)  Rotary club, or a qualified NGO to assist with this project. Matches for these grants are available from the District on a $1 to $1 basis, and matches from The Rotary Foundation are also available.

Global Grants – Projects in excess of $30,000 which help fund an international project and must have the collaboration of an international Rotary club to assist with this project. Matches for Club cash are available from the District up to $10,000. The Rotary Foundation may match Club cash up to 3.5 to 1.
