  • What are District Grants?

    • District Grants fund small-scale, short-term activities that address needs in your community and community’s abroad. Each District chooses which activities it will fund with these grants.

    • Districts need to become qualified to apply for District Grants.  Districts must become qualified in order to receive grant funding from The Rotary Foundation (TRF).
