The District Project Fund was established in 1998-99 to provide matching funds for club and District projects that do not qualify for Rotary Foundation financial support. Funding must be used to finance a District Project not in the budget, a World Community Service project or a local community project.

Criteria Updated July 2015

  1. Maximum grant amount is $2500.00
  2. Clubs may receive a grant every Rotary year.
  3. Club sponsored projects must include active participation of Rotarians. Please state how Rotarians will be participating in your project.
  4. Clubs must have given on average of $50 per member to The Rotary Foundation in the previous Rotary year.
  5. Projects may be local or international in nature.
  6. Club sponsored projects which do not qualify include outright contributions from clubs to other groups or organizations. Rotarians need to be sponsors of funded projects. (As an example, a Rotary club which wants to give money to a nonprofit group for their literacy program will not qualify for matching funds. However, if the Rotary club wants to do a literacy program they would possibly qualify).
  7. Projects must be new, start-up projects or include a new twist to an existing project. Ongoing projects or expenses do not qualify.
  8. All District sponsored projects must apply to the Rotary Foundation when applicable, and must have a district wide fundraising campaign. Exemptions must be approved by the District Project Fund committee.
  9. Grants may be submitted anytime. Grants are reviewed in the order that they are received. It is a first come, first served program. If a grant is submitted and the committee determines it needs clarification, the grant will be returned. The grant will “lose its place” in the line-up of applications and will be reconsidered in the order that it is received after clarifications have been made.
  10. Club dues must be paid and up to date. Clubs who are behind in paying their dues will have their grant request returned and may resubmit once the dues are paid.


Procedure; Grant requests must be submitted on the authorized application form found on the District web site. Please email DPF coordinator, Nancy Loberger at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Additional information may be provided. The District Project Fund committee will consider all applications received within a two week period once the application is complete. Notification of the committee action will be sent to the primary contact person on the application.
