District Grant Program


District grants fund small-scale, short-term activities that address needs in your community and communities abroad. Each club 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.

All 2020-21 District Grants final reports are due to District Grants Chair, Cynthia Kolsun by May 31.
The link to the Final Report form is below. If you have questions, contact Cindy Kolsun.

The 2021-22 Grants Seminar and Certification is scheduled for June 26 at the Days Inn & Suites in Flatwoods, WV. The program will be held during the District All Clubs Assembly. At least one person from each club is required to attend the seminar. If you cannot attend in-person, hybrid online options will be available.
All grant forms and applications will soon be updated and available below.

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.

A completed MOU will be necessary.
