Lead Club and Supporting Club DDF for Global Grants. 
The District Grants Sub-committee's (DGSC) role is to support the clubs efforts in going out and doing good in our communities. We are responsible for stewarding the funds received through The Rotary Foundation and ensuring all rules and policies are followed to allow for the continued use of Foundation dollars.
Our goal each and every year is to get every dollar received into the hands of Rotarians around the district.

DGSC Principles for Assessing Grant Applications

  • All clubs applying for DDF must pledge the required amount of club funds to the project, regardless of club size or contributions to the Annual Fund. Contribution rates for clubs are set annually by the DGSC and are subject to revision to maximize the DDF (District Designated Funds) disbursement.
  • Applicant clubs must be "up to date" on their reporting requirements for open grants.
  • Clubs must be qualified annually to be awarded DDF. Qualification consists of signing the TRF Club Memorandum of Understanding and having at least one club member attend the district qualification seminar in person, or by webinar.
  • The DGSC aims to keep the application process and the reporting requirements as simple as possible while meeting TRF expectations for stewardship.
  • The DGSC annually recommends limits for each type of DDF award. These recommendations are subject to approval by the district board and may be revised throughout the year to minimize any carryover.

    TRF allows up to 50 percent of the annual SHARE account to be allocated as DDF between district grants. The allocation to the district block grant is determined by the value of the eligible district grant applications submitted by clubs, but can never exceed 50 percent of DDF.
