District Public Image Grant

Creating a positive and warm image of who we are, what we do, and why we are so passionate about Rotary is so important. Sharing about our lives, supporting the community, and making the world a better place is what Rotary is all about, and we live by the motto: “Service Above Self.”

The District 6220 Public Image Grant Program will allow clubs to share their experience and make Rotary a known organization in the community of which people will want to become a member and participant. Clubs are encouraged to apply for this matching grant which can be used towards enhancing the Public Image of Rotary externally, within their communities, and internally, among fellow Rotarians. The grants are not intended to be used for advertising for specific events or fundraising initiatives.

The grant can be used for initiatives such as website development or enhancement, video production, podcasts, public service announcements or advertising campaigns designed to promote Rotary in general, membership promotion, etc.

To encourage clubs to actively work towards enhancing the Public Image of Rotary and to increase the awareness and understanding of Rotary International and Rotary Clubs within our district, including but not limited to increasing and maintaining loyalty to and awareness of the Rotary brand, increasing website and social media traffic, creating a positive club image, attracting new members, and helping the club to compete more effectively with other community organizations for positive attention in the local media and for membership.
