ROUND ONE OF DISTRICT GRANTS 2020-21 ANNOUNCED
District grants fund small-scale, short-term activities that address needs in your community and communities abroad.
Each district chooses which activities it will fund with these grants.
You can use district grants to fund a variety of district and club projects and activities, including:
- Humanitarian projects, including service travel and disaster recovery efforts
- Scholarships for any level, length of time, location, or area of study
- Youth programs, including Rotary Youth Exchange, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), Rotaract, and Interact
- Vocational training teams, which are groups of professionals who travel abroad either to teach local professionals about their field or to learn more about it themselves
There is plenty of freedom to customize your service projects.

ROUND 1 OF DISTRICT GRANTS FORMS AVAILABLE SOON
The first round of grant applications will soon be available on the District 7545 website. Grants chair for 2020-21, Cynthia Kolsun has indicated that the forms CAN can be completed online or downloaded, whichever you prefer.
Again, grants will require a dollar-for-dollar Club match, and the District’s portion will be reimbursed to the Clubs upon completion and approval of the Final Report.
Please note the maximum grant amount has yet to be determined and the due date for application submission for Round 1 is August 15, 2020. A completed MOU will be necessary.
JUNE 30 DEADLINE DATE FOR ROUND 2 of
2019-2020 FINAL GRANT REPORTS
Final reports for District grants during the 2019-20 year are due on the following dates:
Round 1 Grants are due May 31 and Round 2 deadline has been set for June 30.
If the COVID-19 outbreak has interfered with grant completion, all clubs work with approved grants will need to complete them by the end of this Rotary year (June 30). There is no flexibility in extending grants beyond the current Rotary year.
Completed project final reports, along with the supporting receipts and documentation, must be submitted by the deadline dates. Failure to submit reports on time will put the District’s grant program in jeopardy.
The final report is an online report and can be found on this website at this link: Final Grant Report
