The Rotary Foundation (TRF) requires that clubs who wish to participate in Global or District Grants must agree to the terms for financial and stewardship requirements in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
Rotary District 5050 requires that a minimum of two club members must attend a Grants Management Seminar each year, and that one of those two members must be the President-Elect (incoming president).  The other member(s) should be the club member(s) that would normally complete and be responsible for the District and/or Global Grant application.
Upon successful completion of the qualification requirements, the club will be qualified for one Rotary year. Club members are qualified for three Rotary years.

There are two seminars each spring (one in Washington and one in BC).  Both seminars cover the same format, and club members may choose either one to attend.

Topics included are: Purpose, Grant Management, Successful Grant Projects, Stewardship, Qualification, Designing a Project, Applying for and Implementing a Grant, Oversight and Reporting, and Memorandum of Understanding.  You can download the three part Powerpoint files used for the Grants Management Seminar in the left column.

Attendees learn about District Designated Funds, District Grants and Global Grants.

On the left column is the
District 5050 Grant Management Manual with further details and information.
