The Rotary Foundation provides different grant programs to Rotary clubs and districts for the purpose of implementing humanitarian projects both locally and globally.  The World Community Service committee seeks to use the various grants available through District 5100 and The Rotary Foundation to promote projects with an educational element in other countries.

District Simplified Grants - Small grants up to $2000 to be used by Rotary clubs for local projects and to benefit the community

Volunteer Service Grants - Grants up to $3000 for Rotarians and $6000 for groups of Rotarians to assist in travel expenses for Rotary Projects

Matching Grants - Up to $25,000 available for international service projects involving Rotary clubs or districts in two or more countries

Competitive Matching Grants - Awards up to $150,000 available for international service projects involving Rotary Clubs or districts in two or more countries.  The Grant process involves performing an community needs analysis and the grants are competitive with other large denomination projects.

Health, Hunger and Humanity Grants (3-H) - Competitive large denomination ($100,000 - $300,000) grants awarded to fund long-term, self-help, and grassroots development projects that are too large for one club or district to implement on their own.
