Every year, more than 1 million children are left motherless and vulnerable because of maternal deaths, and children who have lost their mothers are up to 10 times more likely to die prematurely than those who have not. Christy Turlington

District 9620 is now calling for applications for District Grants for club project for the 2021-22 Rotary Year. For District 9620 we have made some changes in the way we will manage the District grant process. Full details of the process can be found on the new District 9620 website District Grant Administration and Financial Management Plan.

Applications close 30April 2021 and clubs will then be advised of approval, or otherwise, following assessment of all applications. To eligible for a District Grant clubs must meet the following qualification requirements:
  1. The club must be in good financial standing with RI and District
  2. At least one Club member must have completed a Rotary Foundation Grant Management Seminar and the Club must have signed the Club Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
  3. Club must have a Grant Financial Management Plan
  4.  All District and Global Grant Reports must be up to date
District Grants fund short-term activities and projects ,either local or international, that support The Rotary
Foundation’s Mission.
Clubs can submit up to three applications per year but they must be prioritised.
Normally, Grant funding will be allocated to clubs on a reimbursement basis. However, clubs, as part of their
application, may submit a request for funding in advance along with justification for that request.
The Committee will consider such requests on a club by club basis, based on the following criteria and at the full discretion of the Committee (approval of payment in advance should not be assumed by clubs):
  • a. The Club’s Grant Management Plan.
  • b. The Club’s justification for requesting advanced funding as provided in their application.
  • c. The Club’s history with respect to proper grant management
Whilst not mandatory, club contributions towards the project for which the grant is being sought, will
receive favourable consideration by the Grants Sub-Committee. Further, whilst there is no limit to the
amount clubs can request in their District Grant applications, clubs should be mindful of the limited
availability of DDF and the fact that the committee will be looking to distribute funds fairly across the
District. Combining with other Clubs in the District for grants for larger projects is encouraged as it will
allow larger amounts to be sought.
Your completed Grant Application is to be forwarded to the Chair of the Grants Sub-Committee, PDG Alan
Stephens at
