The Rotary Foundation offers multiple types of grants to serve the wide variety of projects that Rotarians are doing around the world. Explore the different grant types to find which one is right for your activity.

District grants

District grants fund smaller, short-term activities that address needs in both your local community and communities worldwide. Each district gets to choose which projects it will fund with these grants.

Global grants

Global grants support large international activities with sustainable, measurable outcomes in one or more of the six areas of focus. The Rotary Foundation accepts global grant applications on a rolling basis throughout the year.

Packaged grants

Packaged grants have been predesigned by Rotary and our strategic partners. The activities they fund are similar to those funded by global grants, but the work of designing the activity’s general framework has already been done.
