  • Early in the process, the Trustees—through recommendation from the Future Vision Committee—adopted the motto, mission statement, and priorities, which were approved and endorsed by the RI Board and the 2007 Council on Legislation. The Rotary Foundation’s new motto and mission are: <br /> READ FOR THE AUDIENCE <br /> Note that some words in the mission are underlined. The committee and trustees used these key words as the basis for the Foundation’s future focus. <br />
  • Now, how do we fund this new grant structure? <br /> First, the current SHARE system will remain—Annual Programs Fund contributions will be split 50/50 between the District Designated Fund (or DDF) and the World Fund. Within the DDF, each district may elect to receive up to 50% of the available DDF for Rotary Foundation District Grants. <br /> The remaining DDF—50% or more—along with World Fund, cash flow through contributions, permanent fund earnings, named gifts, and donor advised funds support Rotary Foundation Global Grants. Keep in mind that the current World Fund matching concept so familiar and attractive to Rotarians will remain in the funding model. However, the World Fund match of DDF, cash and DAF will only be available for Global Grants. The Foundation will no longer provide a World Fund match for smaller, less strategic projects and activities. <br /> Additionally, the Trustees approved the concept that packaged grants will be primarily funded from the World Fund. However, clubs and districts may also use DDF and cash to purchase packaged grants. <br />
  • Rotary Foundation Global Grants will be awarded in the six areas of focus. Designed to support larger projects and activities, these grants offer opportunities to participate in more strategically focused, sustainable activities. <br /> Under this grant type, clubs and districts will select from two options: <br /> 1. Club- and district-developed projects will be similar to larger matching grants and 3-H grant projects, GSEs, and ambassadorial scholarships. Both humanitarian and educational activities must meet the minimum award amount ($15,000) and relate to an area of focus to be eligible for global grants. We will discuss the funding model shortly. <br /> 2. Packaged grants may be coordinated with a strategic partner. The Foundation will work to provide projects and activities “off the shelf” that have a standardized approach in creating, implementing, monitoring, and reporting. It is anticipated that packaged grants will be funded entirely by the World Fund or in coordination with the strategic partner. We will discuss this concept further shortly. <br />
