Transcript District Simplified - Rotary District 7610

District Grants
The District Grant program
supports service activities and
humanitarian endeavors of your
club at the local, national and
international levels.
DGs are funded solely by District Designated
Funds, which are funds that result from your
contributions to The Rotary Foundation's
(TRF) Annual Programs Fund-SHARE.
DG is a single “block” grant provided to
district, which then divides the grant among
clubs based on their applications.
Thank you for your continued support !!!
Can be local or international.
Rotarians must be actively engaged in various
phases of the project.
Should be planning, organizing, fundraising,
publicity, execution, reporting and review.
Cannot spend money until grant approved.
Project cannot be a pass-through, in which funds
are simply awarded to another organization with
no subsequent Rotarian involvement or control.
