Applying for a Grant

Do you want to apply for one in 2022-2023?


Global and District Grants overview

The Global and District Grants process overview is a downloadable Powerpoint presentation which cannot be viewed online. When you click here you will have the option to either Open the document or Show it in your Download folder.

There is an annual cycle for District Grant applications which means that all applications have to be submitted to DRFC before 30th June so that they can be approved in UK and sent to Rotary International as a batch. A single grant payment for all of these grants is made to DRFC who forwards the amounts approved to individual clubs.

Applications for Global Grants can be made at any time via the Grants Centre on MyRotary and, once approved by all parties, are automatically forwarded to Rotary International.

District Designated Grant Application Form

The District Designated Grant Application Form for 2022-2023 should be completed to provide a brief summary of the application. To compete the document please download it in MSWord format so that you can complete it and then email it to Tony Hadfield DRFC

District Club Qualification Memorandum of Understanding

The Club Qualification Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) document for 2022-2023 is for both Global Grants and District Grants. To compete the document please download it in MSWord format so that you can complete it and then email it to Tony Hadfield DRFC.


District Grant Management Seminar

One member from each Club must complete the Grant Management Seminar course on Learning Centre so that they may apply for a grant. Once this qualification has been attained the re-qualification in subsequent years is considerably shorter.


Grant Success Stories

Every year Rotary gives Grants to a wide range of organisations worldwide, and we publish here details on some of these so that Rotarians can see the breadth of opportunities where a Grant may make all of the difference.

The first two Global Grants to feature here are:

  • Global Mercy - When launched in 2021, the Global Mercy will become the world’s largest purpose-built civilian hospital ship 
  • Brighter Futures Radiotherapy Appeal, which will dramatically improve access to radiotherapy and cancer treatment in the South of England.
