This committee provides the link with Rotary Internationals main charitable trust which primarily deals with projects having a global nature.
Plans for the year:Peace Studies
The Club will continue to support the University of Bradford Peace Studies department by attending their functions and providing what support we can.
We aim to arrange for a Peace Scholar to visit our Club and make a presentation on the work he/she is doing at the Peace department of the University of Bradford.
The new process for acquiring grants now requires a member of the Club to attend a special course before the Rotary year commences. Our Chairman Alan Arthur has attended the relevant course and may submit an application for a District Grant for 2018/9 before the deadline of 15th July 2018. We will request £500 in District Grant and this money together with another £500 from our Charity will be used to support a local charity.
We will also make grant applications to the George Towler Trust and the Craig Charity for Children. If we receive any grants they will be used to finance the provision of Dictionaries 4 Life to schools within the Bradford district.
Rotary Foundation Direct Giving
In this as in previous years we will encourage members to make a Gift Aid payment towards our Foundation Funds. This year a figure of £24 will be requested from each member.
This year we aim to give £500 to Polio Plus, which will be an increase over last year.
