Grants

Rotary District 5060 facilitates a variety of grant opportunities to encourage club activities. For more information about any aspect of the Rotary International Foundation and/or grants contact one of the District chairs.

Rotary 5060 grants and training opportunities are available to club members for club-supported activities. Rotary also supports a number of non-profit organizations and activities throughout our local communities. If you are not a member of Rotary, contact your local clubs for information about sponsoring or donating to local efforts. Below are a list of the grant and training opportunities available to club members.

District grants fund small-scale, short-term activities that address needs in our local communities and communities abroad. Each district chooses which activities it will fund with these grants.

Global grants support large, international activities with sustainable, measurable outcomes in Rotary International’s areas of focus. Grant sponsors form international partnerships that respond to real community needs.

Rotarians can use both district grants and global grants to fund a variety of district and club projects and activities, including:

  • Humanitarian projects, including service travel and disaster recovery efforts
  • Scholarships for any level, length of time, location, or area of study
  • Vocational training teams

Public image grants encourage clubs to actively work toward enhancing the public image of Rotary and to increase the awareness and understanding of Rotary International and Rotary Clubs within our district.


Training

District 5060 supports clubs through education and training. Rotary 5060 offers numerous year-round training opportunities, and a few of our more common trainings are listed below. Check out our calendar for upcoming training opportunities.

District training is held each year to develop the necessary skills, knowledge, and motivation for Rotary club leaders to sustain and grow their membership base, implement successful projects that address the needs of their communities and communities in other countries, and support The Rotary Foundation through both program participation and financial contributions.

The Rotary Learning Institute (RLI) program is a series of fast-paced, interactive courses offered to refine a Rotarian’s leadership skills and increase their knowledge base in Rotary. Courses are fun, topical, interactive, and geared to busy business, professional, and community leaders who want to be more effective in their vocation and Rotary club while being more knowledgeable Rotarians.

Vocational training teams travel abroad to learn about a particular field of study or to offer their knowledge to another group of professionals. Teams can be funded by district grants and global grants.
