Use District Grants for one time projects locally and globally
Utah Rotary uses District Designated Funds (DDF) through The Rotary Foundation to
assist our clubs with smaller projects through District Grants. Your club can use these grants for one time projects that take place within the Rotary year. All clubs are encouraged to apply, as all clubs have contributed to the DDF used for these grants.
See the information below for guidelines, applications, and contact information.
- We have new District Grants Co-Chairs and their contact information is below.
- You must now submit a letter of support from your project partner.
- All applications will now be completed online through a Google Form.
Your club’s District Grant Final Report Form MUST be filed by or before June 15 of the next year. A delay in filing your club’s Final Report delays distribution of DDF for all clubs in the next Rotary Year.
For 2021-2022 District Grant applications:
For clubs A – M: Kurt Brooks 801-352-2333
For clubs N-Z: Rulon Olsen 801-694-2723
Use Global Grants for large projects with international Rotary club partners
Global grants support large international activities with sustainable, measurable outcomes in Rotary’s areas of focus. By working together to respond to real community needs, clubs and districts strengthen their global partnerships.
Read A Guide to Global Grants for detailed information on planning your project, applying for a grant to fund it, carrying it out, and reporting on your progress and outcome.
Global grants can fund:
- Humanitarian projects
- Scholarships for graduate-level academic studies
- 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
The minimum budget for a global grant project is $30,000. Club money and private donations to a grant can be leveraged by contributions made by our district through District Designated Funds (DDF) and the World Fund of Rotary International. The World Fund will match our district’s DDF contributed to a grant at 80%. Clubs looking to use DDF need to fill out a “Request for DDF Form” form.
For more information, contact our District Global Grants Subcommittee Chair Andy Dahmen.
