The Rotary Foundation Grants 2017-2018

 
Welcome to D7090 Grants Page for the Rotary year 2017-2018.  
 
In preparation for the upcoming Rotary year, 2017-2018, all clubs were invited to attend one of our TWO Grant Management Qualification Seminars:
1) September 17, 2016 seminar held in Kenmore, New York with 54 registrations.
2) November 19, 2016 seminar held in Niagara Falls, Ontario with 75 registrations.
 
We extend our heartfelt thanks to our facilitators and our many attendees who participated in these sessions.
 
Qualification assures The Rotary Foundation that your club has the proper financial and stewardship controls in place to successfully manage grant funds. Grant management encompasses everything from selecting projects and activities to applying for a grant to ensuring proper stewardship of funds to evaluating and reporting grant outcomes.
 
To be eligible to participate in any Rotary Foundation Grant supported by District 7090, each Rotary year must be qualified on an annual basis, which includes having the required membership, at least TWO (2) ACTIVE club members, attend our District Grant Management Seminar, and executing the required documentation within the prescribed time lines.
It is recommended by past attendees, that the following individuals, President-Elect, President-Nominee, and any members involved in International and Community service considering support from the Rotary Foundation Grants program, plan to attend this seminar.
 
Clubs are invited to send more than 2 representatives; however the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and the Addendum need to be executed by the President Elect (2017-2018) Club President and President Nominee (2017-2018 Club President) in accordance with Rotary Foundation requirements. Please note that copies of these two documents will be provided at the seminar, and may be signed at that time, subject to your club guidelines for executing documents, or forwarded after the seminar within the prescribed time lines.
 
Reminder that the required Memo of Understanding (MOU) and Addendum need to be submitted by the December 15,  2016 deadline as part of the qualification process.
