Rotary District 6580 is now accepting District Grant applications through May 1, 2022, for grants to be funded during the 2022-23 Rotary year (07/01/2022 - 06/30/2023). Pertinent information and required documentation can be found below. Please contact Bettye Dunham, District Grant Chair, with any additional questions.
The Share System explained: Through the SHARE system, contributions to The Rotary Foundation are transformed into grants that fund local and international humanitarian projects, scholarships, and activities. At the end of every Rotary year, contributions directed to the Annual Fund from all Rotary clubs in the district are divided between the World Fund and the District Designated Fund (DDF), after 5% is deducted for operating expenses. At the end of three years, our district can use the DDF to pay for Foundation, club, and district projects that your club and others in the district choose. Districts may use up to half of their DDF to fund district grants. The remaining DDF may be used for global grants or donated to PolioPlus, the Rotary Peace Centers, Global Scholars or another district project.
