The Rotary Foundation District Community Grants:
The Rotary Foundation District Community Grant may be used for local or international projects. To be eligible clubs must have donated at least USD $100 / Capita (based on July 1, 2018 membership) to the Rotary Foundation Annual Fund by June 30, 2019; they must have had at least two members attend a 2019 Grant Management Seminar, and they must have completed and submitted the RI and D6400 Memoranda of Understanding. The application due date is May 30, 2019 and the grant application is to be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The club contribution to the project must be at least USD $1,000 and will be matched dollar for dollar from the District Designated Funds (DDF) to a maximum of USD $2,500. Clubs will receive a check for the matching DDF after the project has been completed and the report filed. If this causes a financial hardship, contact PDG Rick Caron, the District Rotary Foundation Coordinator. The project must start only after the District receives its Block Grant and before May 30, 2020. Clubs will be notified of the Block Grant approval date. Clubs may only apply for a single such grant each year. NOTE: Clubs may apply for both a Single Club and Collaborative grant, but only one of each. At the completion of the project, please click here for the report form to be completed and submitted to email@example.com
The Rotary Foundation District Community (Collaborative) Grant:
This is essentially the same as the above District Community Grant except that there must be from 2 to four clubs involved and each club must contribute at least USD $500 and the total contributed will be matched dollar for dollar from the District Designated Funds (DDF) to a maximum of USD $4,000. Clubs may apply for a single such grant each year. NOTE: Clubs may apply for both a Single Club and Collaborative grant, but only one of each.

The Rotary Foundation Global Grant
Global grants support projects with a total budget of at least USD $30,000. Global grants must be in one of Rotary’s six areas of focus. These grants must have a host Rotary Club partner in a different country; and will support humanitarian projects, Global Scholars, and Vocational Training Teams. Global grant applications can be made at any time and must be completed through the My Rotary portal. More information can be found at this link. If your club is giving consideration to a global grant application, please contact our global grants chair AG Russ Jones by email firstname.lastname@example.org. If approved and if funds are available, D6400 will match the club contribution to a maximum of USD $10,000 in District Designated Funds (DDF). The Rotary Foundation will match the DDF dollar for dollar and will match the club contribution at $0.50 per dollar. Consequently, a USD $10,000 commitment from your club will result in a Global grant of USD $35,000.
D6400 Foundation World Community Service District Matching Grant
The World Community Service District Matching Grant is to provide Rotary clubs in District 6400 with funding for World Community Service Projects, i.e., projects outside Canada and the United States. Funds available for this grant program are raised exclusively from the annual District Governors Golf Outing. The Trustees of the Rotary District 6400 Foundation (The Governor, two previous Governors, the Governor-Elect and the Governor-Nominee) will review all applications and funds will be awarded according to the merit of the project, availability of funds, adherence to grant requirements and other considerations as determined by the Trustees. The application deadlines are April 1 and October 1, although urgent proposals with exceptional need will be considered at any time. All applications are to be submitted to the District Governor. Please note that:
- Rotary Clubs with an outstanding final report from a previously awarded World Community Service District Matching Grant are ineligible to apply
- The grant amount awarded will be no greater than twice the amount provided by the club.
- Only one application is allowed per club in each competition.
- Typically, less than $10,000 in total is distributed at each competition.
Send a free-form FINAL REPORT to the District Governor within 30 days of the completed project. The report is to include receipts, a statement of revenue and expenses, a description of what was accomplished, photos, and other relevant details. Please bring home an item or two to be sold at the next District Governor Golf Outing to help raise funds for this grant.
