Make sure your global grant project fits an area of focus
Both packaged grants and global grants support large international activities with sustainable, high-impact outcomes in Rotary’s six areas of focus. If you decide to work with one of Rotary’s strategic partners on a packaged grant, the area of focus is predetermined. But if your club is interested in pursuing a global grant, you’ll need to ensure that your project addresses at least one of the following:
- Peace and conflict prevention/resolution
- Disease prevention and treatment
- Water and sanitation
- Maternal and child health
- Basic education and literacy
- Economic and community development
Before your club or district applies for a global grant, it’s essential to identify which area(s) of focus the project is designed to address. Conduct a community needs assessment to determine how your project can benefit the community. Use the results to establish the project’s area of focus.
Global grant projects must meet certain requirements within the areas of focus to be eligible for funding. To learn more, see the Areas of Focus Statements of Purpose and Goals.
