ImagePittsford Rotarian Peter J. Brown of Express Employment Professionals gave Pittsford Rotary an update of what grant money is available.  And that the grant application process has been most recently streamlined.

District grants fund smaller, short-term activities that address needs in both your local community and communities worldwide. Each district gets to choose which activities it will fund with these grants.  District grants can be used for:
    1)  Humanitarian projects, including service travel and disaster recovery efforts;
    2)  Scholarships for any level, length of time, location, or area of study; and
    3)  Vocational training of any team size or timespan.

Global grants support large international activities with sustainable, measurable outcomes in one or more of the six areas of focus. Global grants must:
    1) Be an international partnership between a Rotary club or district in the country where the activity takes place and a Rotary club or district outside of that country
    2) Be sustainable and include plans for long-term success after the global grant funds have been spent
    3) Include measurable goals that are demonstrated through progress reports
    4) Align with one of our six areas of focus
    5) Respond to real community needs
    6) Include active participation from both Rotarians and community members
    7) Have a minimum budget of US$30,000
    8) Meet the eligibility requirements in the grants terms and conditions
