The Trustees of The Rotary Foundation have allowed the use of additional District Designated Funds for District Grants in 2019-20.  In addition to the formulated amount District 5970 will get for next year’s grants (approximately $75,000), we will have an additional $18,610 available.  

That means our club should be thinking about, planning for, and submitting an application for a district grant for 2019-20.  You have a terrific opportunity to be funded.

The Grant Management Seminar training will be offered two times next spring.  To qualify for a district grant, our club is required to have a representative participate in one of the training sessions.  Here are the two choices:

         Saturday, March 30 from 10 – 11:00 am—online only

         Saturday, April 27 in the afternoon (time TBD)—at the District Conference in Clear Lake, IA (we may offer this one online as well)

You’ll be hearing more about the District Grant program in the coming months.  In the meantime, start planning! Questions? Please contact Don Meyer, District Foundation Chair, at 641-251-4665, or at
