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

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

Competitive Matching Grants
