14 District Managed Grants (DMGs) totaling $45.051.55 have been awarded to (16) D7980 Rotary Clubs since July 1, 2013.
All of theses funded applications can be reviewed below.
We still have about $15,000 in funding remaining for additional DMGs which must be used before June 30th. A number of our Rotary Clubs have applications pending and several others have indicated that they will submit project applications BUT KEEP IN MIND – this funding is first come, first serve.
The two largest Single Club DMG’s of $5,000 each were received by Orange Rotary and Stratford Rotary while the largest Multi Club DMG for $7,500 was received by the partnership of Westport Sunrise, Westport and Bridgeport.

Basic District Managed Grants Guidelines:
- Be in direct support of a humanitarian project that is new for the Club. A “new” project is a project that is new to the club or one that involves a specific new addition to an existing project that improves the project’s effectiveness.
- Align with one of Rotary’s six 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
- Be short term a project with all application approvals and funds disbursed to the clubs during the Rotary year, by 6/30; completed by 9/15
- Involve Club Rotarians in hands-on activities that support the humanitarian project
- No project can be implemented or funds spent until all District approval signatures have been obtained
