First, a huge THANK YOU to all Rotarians that joined the two Zoom meetings on District Grants at the District Training Virtual Assembly. It was wonderful to see so many Rotarians learning about District Grants at the same time.
Based on those sessions, I wanted to send a reminder that the May 15, 2021 deadline for the 2021-2022 Rotary year District Grants is fast approaching. This deadline pertains to both the standard and competitive grant requests. Standard grants are available for up to $1,750 per club (plus $750 extra for those nine clubs qualifying for the bonus*).
We have three competitive grants available (two at $10,000 and one at $5,000). Each club may request only one standard grant and one competitive grant. Your grant request(s) for the 2021-2022 Rotary year must be accepted by the District no later than May 15. Please have your clubs designated grant representative submit your request prior to May 15th if possible so the grant(s) request can be reviewed by the District. That will give you time to make any suggested or required changes prior to the deadline.
Be sure to review the resources section on the Districts Grants page on our website prior to submitting your grant request(s). By reviewing the DTA PowerPoint copy on the resources page you will have a step-by-step guide on how to navigate the District Grants section of the website and how to apply for your grant(s). Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. I am more than happy to help your club request the funds necessary to change lives in your community.
Yours In Rotary Service,
2021-2022 District Grants Chair
*Nine clubs eligible for additional $750 funding (based on 2018-2019 Foundation giving criteria): Alpharetta, Buckhead, Dunwoody, East Cobb, Muscogee, North Fulton, Peachtree City, Roswell, Thomasville
