  4. Proposals • Multi-step process: • Submit a brief proposal to D-5470 Global Grants Committee • Submit more detailed TRF online application (after taking online tutorial)

  5. Applying for Global Grants • Two-step application process online • Meet goals of area of focus • Be sustainable • Involve Rotary clubs in two districts • Minimum budget of US$30,000 • District confirms club is qualified

  6. Application • Rotarians will submit an online application that provides the Foundation with more detailed grant activity and budget information. • (Depending on the award amount or complexity of the project, the Foundation may request additional details.) Applications requesting a World Fund award (match) of more than US$100,000 will be reviewed by the Trustees quarterly. The following dates will be used to determine at which Trustee meeting applications will be reviewed:

  7. Global Grant Conditions • Activities must be sustainable  and measurable. • Activities should stem from real community needs. • Global grants must be sponsored by two Rotary clubs or districts. • Both partners must be actively involved in the planning and implementing of all global grants.

  8. Areas of Focus Peace and conflict prevention/resolution Disease prevention and treatment Water and sanitation Maternal and child health Basic education and literacy Economic and community development

  9. Needs Assessment • Base project on the community’s need • Assess resources of your club and potential partners • Talk to the community

  10. Sustainable Projects • Giving a community the skills and knowledge to maintain project outcomes for the long term, after grant funds have been expended

  11. Funding • The minimum award amount from the World Fund for a global grant, regardless of activity type, is US$15,000, which results in a minimum total financing of $30,000. • Maximum TRF award is $200,000.00

  12. Global Grant Financing • DDF matched 100% with World Fund • Rotary Club cash contributions matched 50% with World Fund • Non-Rotarian organizations’ cash contributions (no benefits from project) matched 50% • Non-Rotarian organizations’ cash contributions (involved in project - not matched by the Foundation)

  13. Sample Grant Funding • ContributionsRotary Foundation Match • District 5470 Designated Funds (DDF): $ 10,000.00 ----- $10,000.00 • Rotary Club “A” Funds: $ 5,000.00 ------ $ 2,500.00 • Rotary Club “B” Funds: $ 5,000.00 ----- $ 2,500.00 • Cooperating Organization Funds: $ 1,000.00 ---- $ 0.00 • $ 21,000.00 + $ 15,000.00* = • $ 36,000.00* (Project Funding) • *Satisfies Minimum Match of $15,000.00 and Minimum Project Total of $30,000.00

  14. GLOBAL GRANT FUNDING TEMPLATE

  15. Financing Guidelines Cash contributions must come from orbe raised by Rotarians Funds cannot be raised from beneficiaries in exchange for receiving the grant Funds cannot come from other grants Contributions should be credited to donor

  16. Global Grant Reports: Frequency • Progress reports • Within 12 months of first payment • Every 12 months through the life of the grant • Final report within 2 months of completion

  17. Global Grant Proposal Form

  18. Project Planning • Form a three-person grant committee • Assign roles • Implementation plan • Budget • Contingency plan • Document retention plan

  19. Creating a Budget • Realistic • Competitive bidding • Reasonable prices • Disclose conflicts of interest

  20. Setting Goals • Measurable • Sustainable • Qualitative (descriptive) • Quantitative (numeric)

  21. Setting Goals • Gather baseline data • Set goals • Determine method of measurement

  22. Applying for and Implementing a Grant

  23. Areas of Focus Peace and conflict prevention/resolution Disease prevention and treatment Water and sanitation Maternal and child health Basic education and literacy Economic and community development

  24. Sustainable Projects • Giving a community the skills and knowledge to maintain project outcomes for the long term, after grant funds have been expended • Lack of sustainability = No. 1 reason for GG rejection by TRF reviewers

  25. Community Needs/ Strengths Funding Knowledge Motivation Materials/ Technology Monitoring/ Evaluation Have local sponsors conduct a thorough assessment of the community’s needs to identify a need that sponsors are able to support and that meets beneficiaries’ needs and fits their values and culture. Involve multiple community partners in the planning process. Purchase equipment and new technology from local sources, when possible. Ensure spare parts are readily available. Involve community members when selecting technology or equipment, and train them to operate, maintain, and repair it on their own. Develop clear and measurable project objectives, and identify methods for collecting project data. Establish baseline data for evaluation capable of demonstrating significant change for at least three years. Confirm local funding source to provide long-term operation, maintenance, repair, and project longevity. Compensate project participants appropriately for their work to ensure continuity of services. Provide training, education, and community outreach to strengthen beneficiaries’ capacity to meet project objectives. Confirm that recipients have a plan to transfer knowledge to new beneficiaries. Collaborate with local agencies/ organizations to supply expertise, as needed. Provide incentives for beneficiaries and project participants to continue ongoing support. Identify personnel willing to lead beneficiaries to sustain project outcomes. Prepare the community to assume ownership of the project once global grant funds are fully expended. Developing Sustainable Projects Sustainability means different things to different organizations. For The Rotary Foundation, sustainability means providing long-term solutions to community needs that the benefiting community can maintain after grant funding ends. Global grant projects must be sustainable and display the following characteristics: Planning Implementation Reporting Global Grant Timeline
