This page and its associated documents listed on the left are meant to assist Rotary Clubs in our District in benefiting from District grants.  The Rotary Foundation and our District's Foundation Committee and sub-committees' goal is to educate and support Rotary Clubs on how to use these District grant funds to support worthy community projects. 
District grants are block grants funded by The Rotary Foundation.  These grants are provided to districts in order to fund:  projects and travel that align with the mission of The Rotary Foundation, which is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty. 
District grants are funded by The Rotary Foundation solely with allocations from the District Designated Fund (DDF).  A district may apply for a single grant each Rotary year to support one or more projects using up to 50% of the District's SHARE fund allocation, which represents 50% of its annual giving from three years' prior plus any Permanent Fund-SHARE earnings. 
District grants are administered by the District Grant Committee, which is a sub-committee of the District Foundation Committee.
