2019-20 District Grants Approved 


Twenty-one Rotary District Grants were approved in 2019-2020 by the District Grant Committee in District 6270. A total of $58,100 was awarded to fund clubs’ humanitarian service projects. 


A total of 21 applications were received for District Grants from Clubs in our Rotary District for the 2019-20 Rotary Year.  The District Grant Committee reviewed project applications in early July 2018.  All grant applications met the criteria for District Grants in Rotary District 6270.   The largest grant approved was $3,000.  The smallest grant amount approved was $1,500. 

Funds for District Grants are made available through District Designated Funds (DDF) received from The Rotary Foundation based on contributions to the Annual Fund of The Rotary Foundation made three years ago.  A total of $61,694 was budgeted for District Grants for the 2019-20 Rotary Year.  We have received notification from The Rotary Foundation that our application for district grant funding has been approved and that funds will be released to District 6270.


Half of approved grant funds will be disbursed to clubs in early August 2019.  The remaining funds for each grant will be disbursed to clubs following completion of each club’s project and approval of the final project and expense report by the District.  


Approved projects addressed a wide variety of humanitarian, educational, and poverty alleviation concerns.  They included efforts to provide access to water, improvements in health, literacy support, food and agriculture, and community development.  Most of the projects will be conducted in Wisconsin, although there are projects in other countries – Ghana, Guatemala and Haiti.


Many thanks to Rotarians and Rotary Clubs in District 6270 for humanitarian work in your communities and around the world.
