issues faced in 2010 2011

Issues faced in 2010-2011

Clubs with outstanding reports, project lead not assuming responsibility

Confusion about Member Access

Finding partners and fundraising (time consuming)

Online system not user friendly, slow

Clubs not paying attention to DDF requirements

Host DGs and DRFCs taking too long to authorize online Proposals

Clubs taking too long to submit their application, thus tying up DDF

Clubs not listening to Grants Committee advice

Clubs not communicating with their partners/GC/TRF

Rotary District 7620 Grants Committee


Case Studies

You finally found a host club in a war and drought ravaged African country. This Rotary Club has struggled but is in desperate need of a Global Grant and they need you to partner with them. You agree and spend over 200 hours of project design, etc. Your Global Grant application is submitted to TRF and then you find out the club has 3 outstanding Final Reports. Your Global Grant is officially on hold until the Final Reports have been accepted by the TRF. Your host partner appears indifferent to this issue. What do you do?

Rotary District 7620 Grants Committee


Case Studies

You have a reliable host club, a great sustainable project, a responsive cooperating organization and an international club that supports you on every level. Your problem? You don’t have the resources to raise $50,000 in 6 months. What do you do?

Rotary District 7620 Grants Committee


Case Studies

You are engaged in a complex multi-year Global Grant which involves over $300,000 of club cash contributions and multiple district DDF from 5 countries. Interim reporting has been poor or non-existent and despite repeated attempts to get all countries to adhere to reporting guidelines, you have nothing but empty promises . You cannot apply for further grants until the reports are are in good order. Disappointed and de-moralized, your club decides it would be best to sever ties with all of your partners. Is this the best course of action to take?
