Global Grants are larger more sustainable Grants. They require an International Club (one of ours) to partner with a Host Club in a different Rotary Country than our own. By undertaking this international cooperation role, a Club can multiply its funding as much as 3.5 times using money from the Rotary Foundation.
To comply with Rotary Foundation and U. S. Internal Revenue Service regulations, a Club wishing to manage a Global Grant must become "Qualified." Club Qualification requires only two things. First, the Club's President and President-Elect must sign the Club Memorandum of Understanding, assuring the club follows its committments. Second, at least one member of the Club must attend a District-conducted Grants Seminar each Rotary Year.
For assistance in applying for and managing a Global Grant contact District Rotary Foundation Chair, Rick Manganello, As DRFC, I conduct Rotary Grant Seminars as required, generally 2-3 times each Rotary Year.
