Do Large Grants Ever Take Place In North America?

Yes! Rotary global grants can have large projects, scholarships, vocational teams all here in the US or in Canada…or in any Rotary country/region. One of the most amazing aspects of our great foundation is that there are opportunities for large projects where ever there is need. Criteria must be met but there have been and will continue to have large-scale projects in “developed” countries. If you want to see them in motion go to vimeo.com and view the wonderful Grant done after Katrina hit…See your Foundation and other nations come together to help where there is great need!

Do All Community Service Projects Have To Be Done Through The Foundation?

The answer is no, however it is a wonderful way to get involved in your community. Community service projects are born when Rotary clubs from two or more countries join together to accomplish a community service project. These projects link and connect ideas from Rotary Clubs needing extra help with clubs in other countries that are willing to provide funds, materials and technical and professional assistance. Please share your service projects with the Rotary world and friends of Rotary by going to www.rotary.org, www.ideas.rotary.org and then sharing your project on Rotary showcase.

Just What Are Packaged Grants?

Packaged grants are designed by Rotary and our strategic partners to help you carry out large-scale, sustainable projects. Because we’ve taken care of selecting partners, raising funds, and designing the project, you can focus your energy and expertise on bringing the project to life. Like global grants, packaged grants support our areas of focus and can include scholarships, humanitarian projects, and vocational training. The key difference is that the project’s framework is provided for you.

We offer nursing scholarships and training for health educators with our partner Aga Khan University. With our partner UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education, we fund scholarships for water and sanitation professionals. Vocational training and medical service teams work with our partner Mercy Ships. These grants are funded 100% by the World Fund.
