IMPORTANT NOTICE

July 10, 2020
 
Due to the challenges the pandemic has presented our world and unusual circumstances many of our clubs are facing, District leaders have decided to reopen the grants qualification period and the deadline to submit an MOU. Both the MOU and grants qualification training are required for clubs to submit either District Grant applications or Global Grant applications. There will be MANY needs in our communities and once clubs get reinvigorated and back in motion, Rotarians will want to be taking even more action than ever!
 
The new deadline for MOU's and grants qualification training is August 1st. And the new deadline for District Grant applications is August 15th. All three of these can be found at Rotary6040.org > Foundation > Grants. The grants qualification training is located under the Online Education Series tab. 
 
Reminder...both Club Presidents and Grants Chairs must have completed Grants Qualification Training as well as your club must have completed an MOU to apply for any grants. 
 
Please feel free to contact Pat Kurtzeman, District Grants Chair, pat.kurtzeman44@gmail.com; or me, Kim LeSage, District Rotary Foundation Chair, kimlesage@sbcglobal.net, if you have any questions or need any assistance. 
 
Wishing you a great Rotary year and good health and safety to all your club members and their families!
 
All my best, 
 
Kim LeSage
District Rotary Foundation Chair

Global Grants

Global Grants support large, humanitarian, international activities with sustainable, measurable outcomes in Rotary’s six areas of focus.  Grant sponsors form international partnerships that respond to real community needs.   A key feature of Global Grants is a sponsoring partnership, between the districts or clubs where the activity is carried out and a district or club in another country.  All sponsors must be Grants Qualified before they can submit an application.  The minimum budget for a Global Grant is $30,000.  If you would like to have a global Grant considered for district funding with additional funding from The Rotary Foundation, please download the Global Grant Letter of Intent.  When it is completed, submit it to Karyn Eppler, eppler.karyn@gmail.com and Kim Lesage at kimlesage@sbcglobal.net
