RAISING THE FINANCE FOR A GLOBAL GRANT PROJECT CAN BE PROBLEMATIC Global grants are a combination of funds raised by the sponsor clubs and others – a minimum of US$10,000 is required

This will be matched by DDF from District 1040.  The DDF will attract 100%matching from The Rotary Foundation together with 50% matching of the cash input from clubs.

The project cost must amount to US$35,000. Sponsors can finance global grant projects and you can of course ask your partner club to contribute either to the DDF, cash input, or both.

However, there are other sources of support using the wider organisation of Rotary International.

  • Project Description

    The Rotary Club of Camp Aguinaldo did an outreach program for the indigenous Aetat of Pampanga displaced by the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo years ago. The Aetat are now residing in a remote, hard to reach area of Potrac, Pampanga. The nearest water source they go to is about 3 kilometres away, and they need to walk through rugged terrain to get water for food, drink and hygiene.

    We intend to start this project to give them access to clean water by providing a water pump for them. There are about 40 families in the resettlement area and about 200 people that we can help through this project. We are looking for partners to help us raising finance for this project.

  • Contribute Funds

    Contributions would be appreciated to fund purchase of pipes and water pumps and labour costs for complete installation of a water pump. Suggested Contribution or part e.g. 2,000 USD thereof towards the total cost:
