GET READY TO APPLY FOR A GRANT IN 2017-18
The 2017-18 Grants Management Training modules can now be accessed on rotary.org Learning Center.
Interested in getting involved in a District or Global Grant? As in previous years, club qualification requires two members of your club to successfully take all three modules this spring before you can participate in Foundation grant-making. (Why not use this as a learning opportunity and ask members who have not previously taken the course to get involved?) Each of the modules is about 20 minutes in length and the deadline for completing all three is April 30.
The good news: Your club members can access the modules anywhere 24/7 and at absolutely no cost. This shouldn't be difficult! Unlike previous years, the modules will ONLY be available online. No time commitment required for a "terra" seminar this year!
The even better news: The first person in your club to successfully complete the modules will receive (via snail-mail) the newly updated 2017-18 Grants Folder with all pertinent information for applying for a District or Global Grant.
To access the modules: Go to www.rotary.org, and log into "my rotary," then scroll down to the Learning Center, click on "Rotary Grants," and then on "District 7780 Annual Grants Training." You will note that there are three modules, and three short quizzes. You can take them all at once, or spread them out over separate trainings.
Either way, the point is to learn more about the expectations and possibilities of Rotary Foundation grants before you apply. And if your club decides to go out for a District Foundation grant -- and I hope you do -- deadline to apply will be June 1.
