  26. District Grants

  27. Similarity to District Simplified Grants • Projects meet a community need • Annual District Match (DDF) Guidelines • Grant Cycle (short-term projects) • Grant Reporting

  28. What’s Different with District Grants? • Two step process • Proposal • District must submit spending plan for DDF • Can submit proposals now • Applications opening date • August 1, 2013

  29. What’s Different with District Grants? • Lead Club must be qualified • Can be local or international • Oversight of funds is more explicit, e.g., • Separate Bank Accounts • Demonstrate Value in Purchases • Document retention is spelled out

  30. A Successful District Grant • Has active Rotarian involvement • Is a collaboration with the community • Has good documentation • Stays in touch with the beneficiary

  31. DDF for District Grants 2013-14 • Maximum DDF for each Club • $3,000 for Local • $3,000 for International • Maximum per project: • $3,000 if one Club; • $4,000 for two clubs • $5,000 for three or more Clubs • No additional match from TRF

  32. International District Grant • District Grants can be international • Rotary is encouraging Clubs to consider international District Grants • Replaces smaller Matching Grants that are no longer eligible • Does not require local Rotary Club-but projects benefit from local oversight

  33. Planning For a District Grant District issues annual guidelines Submit proposals now for 2013-14 year Acceptance of proposal does not guarantee a Grant award District policy—first come first serve—based on Grant applications, not proposals

  34. Club Planning For District GrantsBest Practices Set service project budget for next year Adopt policy/focus/process for grant support Consider proposals from project champions Submit selected proposals to District Be thoughtful about your proposals—no rush.

  35. District Grant Proposal • Sponsor Club/ Champion info • Short description of project & location • Start and ending dates • Estimated budget • DDF requested

  36. District Grant Application • Similar to current application • Lead Club must be qualified, including current on grant reporting • District reviews and approves application • Funds deposited into a Grant account
