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:
  1. Peace and conflict prevention/resolution
  2. Disease prevention and treatment
  3. Water and sanitation
  4. Maternal and child health
  5. Basic education and literacy
  6. 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
