District grants are grants that enable clubs and districts to address immediate needs in their communities and abroad.
Districts may request up to 50 percent of their District Designated Fund for grants annually.
Districts manage and disburse these funds to support district- and club-sponsored activities, including vocational training teams, scholarships, humanitarian service projects, and cultural exchanges, provided they are aligned with the Foundation’s mission.
Provide matching funds for the international service projects of Rotary clubs and districts. Since 1965, more than 20,000 Matching Grants projects in 166 countries have been funded at a cost of more than US $198 million.
