District Grants

Rotary Foundation District Grants are block grants designed to support smaller dollar amount local and international projects. District grants offer the flexibility to respond quickly to immediate needs or to plan projects with clubs locally or in other countries. These grants can be used for a wide variety of activities as outlined in the Terms and Conditions for Rotary Foundation District Grants and Global Grants.

The applications for District Grants will be reviewed by the District Grant Committee. Upon successful review, the District Grants Committee will submit recommendations for approval to the program year District Governor (DG) and District Rotary Foundation Chair (DRFC) for final submission to TRF.

Successful applicants will be notified in June if their grant(s) were included in District Block Grant request. Subject to Rotary Foundation approval of the District Block Grant requested, district grant funds will be sent to sponsoring club AFTER the project has been completed and the Final Report is submitted.


    • 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.
