Abstract

Do you have a passion to implement a particular humanitarian project through Rotary? As a Rotarian, you can do so through a Global Grant from The Rotary Foundation, an arm of Rotary International. It is not so hard as you think. This article will help you get there. 
Foundation Grants provide one of the best ways to "Do Good in the World." They give individual Rotarians the ability to develop, initiate, and execute needs-based projects that have high sustainable and measurable outcomes and make an impact on individuals and communities. As a result, Rotarians advance world understanding, goodwill and peace. 

The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends who share its vision of a better world. This support is essential to make projects possible, funded with Foundation Grants, that bring sustainable improvement to communities. 

Inter- and intra-district club partnership is the basic building block for funding.  District Designated Fund (DDF) allocated by the districts further adds to the funding.  Together with The Rotary Foundation's matching, the total has significant multiplier effect in reaching budget goal. 
This article provides a step by step description of the Global Grant financing that hopefully makes it easier to understand. Those who claim it is difficult should spend some effort to learn and they will be surprised to discover how easy it is. 

The following key messages are:

1) TRF provides matching funds that enhances the budget as well as its percentage contribution towards a project. 

2) DDF is key to getting more funding from TRF. Rotarians should focus on establishing club-to-club partnerships for cash and increased inter- and intra-district DDF for the project. 

3) Districts receive DDF based on their contribution to The Rotary Foundation. Do donate to The Rotary Foundation to generate more DDF to allocate to projects.
