Using District Designated Funds

520 views

Published on

What are District Designated Funds (DDFs) and how
can they be used? The rules for using DDFs might seem
complicated, so we’ll help you understand how you can use
DDFs to pay for club or district projects, district grants, and
global grants. Learn what happens when DDFs are not spent
in a year, and how these rollover balances can be designated
to support areas such as the Rotary Peace Centers, PolioPlus,
or areas of focus.

  7. 7. DDF ALLOCATION SURVEY 2012 DDF Allocation Surveys- Key FindingsTHIS IS WHAT YOU TOLD US…. – The DRFC and District Governor are the most important officers in this process. – District budgeting priorities: 1. District and global grants, 2. PolioPlus and 3. Rotary Peace Centers – District’s strategic plan and goals of clubs are important in allocation of DDF – DDF is allocated on a competitive basis – in surveys • 42% of districts require clubs to make contributions to TRF in order to receive DDF • 75% of Club Foundation Chairs are satisfied with their districts’ requirements on using DDF • 78% are satisfied with the three year cycle of TRF’s SHARE system • ONLY 50% of districts start planning to use DDF the prior year one takeaway –
