Rotary members in Ecuador and the United States worked together to distribute personal protective equipment to doctors and other health care workers across Ecuador. Funded by a global grant, the initiative was part of a larger project that involved 17 Rotary clubs and two Rotaract clubs throughout Ecuador and benefited more than 35 medical centers and hospitals.

GIVING UPDATES:
  • Support clean water for all

    March is Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Month. Rotary’s people of action mobilize resources, form partnerships, and invest in infrastructure and training that yield long-term change in communities’ access to water and ability to stay healthy

  • Thank you for giving on Giving Tuesday

    The Rotary Foundation raised more than $811,000 for Giving Tuesday in 2020. Thank you to everyone who gave in support of this global day of giving so that together we can keep Doing Good in the World. You can read more about our top fundraisers on My Rotary.

  • Paul Harris Society Resource

    The Paul Harris Society is a network of dedicated Rotary supporters around the world. Society members express their intent to give at least $1,000 each Rotary year to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus, or approved Rotary Foundation grants. 

GRANT UPDATES:
  • Environment added to our area of focus policy statements

    We are moving forward on Rotary’s new area of focus! You can now find more information about how we’ll protect the environment in the updated Areas of Focus Policy Statements.

  • Changes to Rotary’s grants staff

    The Trustees of The Rotary Foundation recently took steps to address the financial pressure on the World Fund that has resulted from Rotarians’ strong interest in using global grants. As a result, Rotary’s grants staff has been restructured.

  • Reminders about global grant timelines

    Planning and executing a global grant project is a large undertaking and takes time to do well, so we want to give grant applicants plenty of time for each stage. We also aim to keep inactive grants and abandoned projects from cluttering our system and using staff time, to keep the Grant Center and the grants process working efficiently for everyone. Please check for updated guidlines

  • Newly recognized Rotary Action Group for Refugees, Forced Displacement, and Migration

    Our new Rotary Action Group for Refugees, Forced Displacement, and Migration will assist clubs and districts with projects that support refugees, internally displaced persons, and vulnerable migrants. These projects may range from providing shelter and food to creating educational and employment opportunities for people in need. Contact the group’s founding chair, Quentin Wodon (rotarianeconomist@gmail.com), to learn more and get involved.

RESOURCES & REFERENCE:
  • Grant management recertification

    The Learning Center offers a nine-course Grant Management Seminar learning plan that is sometimes used as a requirement for club qualification for Rotary grants. If you’ve completed this learning plan in the past, take the Grant Management Recertification 2020-21 course this year. In July we’ll update materials in the Grant Management Seminar to cover changes to funding and our areas of focus.

  • Using reports to manage grants

    You can use the reports on My Rotary to manage your grant activities. These reports are available to all Rotary members and are especially helpful if you’re a district leader who wants to see the status of every grant application in your district. 

  • Take your skills to the next level

    Strong communication and leadership skills are vital to any grant project’s success. Become a more effective presenter, communicator, and leader by taking the Learning Center courses that Toastmasters has developed. From developing and delivering speeches to building consensus and leading a team, these courses will help you polish your personal and professional skills.
