District Grants fund small-scale, short-term activities that address needs in your community and communities abroad. Each district chooses which activities it will fund with these grants.
District Grants are a tool for Rotary districts to support projects that benefit the community and are funded by District Designated Funds (DDF), which is Rotary International Foundation Annual giving from 3 years past and by cash contributions from your Rotary club and your host Rotary club if applicable. The amount of DDF funding for a District Grant is asked for in the grant application but is determined by the District Grants Committee.


You can use district grants to fund a variety of district and club , including:
  • Humanitarian projects, including service travel and disaster recovery efforts
  • Vocational training teams, which are groups of professionals who travel abroad either to teach local professionals about a particular field or to learn more about their own.
