Club Eligibility List


District grants support the services and activities of humanitarian and educational endeavors in which districts wish to engage.
Clubs apply via the District and Club Database at


All district grants must:
a) Adhere to the mission statement of the Rotary Foundation
b)Include the active participation of Rotarians


Districts can use district grant monies 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
  • The following programs of Rotary International: Interact, Rotaract, RYLA. Rotary Youth Exchange, New Generations Service Exchange, and Rotary Friendship Exchanges that comply with the Conflict of Interest policy as outlined in section 10.030 of the Rotary Foundation Code of Policies (April 2020)
  • Other categories as outlined in Section 33.070.2 of the Rotary Foundation Code of Policies (April 2020)


Districts and clubs have a lot of freedom to customize service projects. There aren't many restrictions, as long as our grant supports the mission of The Rotary Foundation. Districts must be qualified before they can administer district grants.  Clubs must be qualified before they can apply.

In order to be qualified, a minimum of one club member must attend Grant Management Training, upload a signed MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) to their application in DACdb, be up-to-date on payment of District Dues, Rotary Int'l Dues and filing of tax return.


Districts may use up to 50 percent of their District Designated Fund to receive one block grant annually. This percentage is calculated based on the amount of DDF generated from a district's Annual Fund giving three years prior, including Endowment Fund earnings.

Districts receive this funding as a lump sum and then distribute it to District Projects and Club Projects within the district.

A Club's maximum potential allocation is based on a club's giving to The Rotary Foundation's Annual Fund three years prior.


Clubs work directly with the district grants committee to get funding for projects. Clubs apply via the District and Club Database at See the Resource List for details on requirements and the application process for our district.


Final Report Instructions*
Delinquent clubs will not be allowed to participate in the district grants program for one year.
