District Grants 2022-2023


What are District Grants?

District Grants fund smaller, short-term activities that address needs in both your local community and communities worldwide. Each District chooses which projects it will fund with these grants. Your clubs can use District Grants to fund a variety of activities, including:

  • Humanitarian projects, including service travel and disaster recovery efforts
  • Scholarships for any level, location, or area of study
  • Vocational training of any team size

What projects are eligible for District Grant funding?

  • A new projector an expansion of a past project (e.g. last year the club purchased dictionaries for 3rd graders at School A. This year, the project has been expanded to purchase dictionaries for 3rd graders at School A and School B.).
  • A hands on project – meaning active Rotarian involvement
  • A local or international project
  • Clubs are encouraged to collaborate on projects
  • Clubs will be reimbursed with the grant funds in May 2023
