The Rotary Foundation requires every Rotary and Rotaract Club that wants to apply for a District or Global Grant is qualified.  It is a yearly process, administered by the Districts.  In D7070, we have an on-line process, consisting of three quizzes connected to three self-study modules.   The modules and quizzes are found on the District’s website, www.rotary7070.org   At least two Club members must pass the three quizzes.  In addition, the Club President (2021-22) and President-Elect (2022-23) must submit a signed MOU – Memorandum of Understanding to the District.

The District 7070 Rotary Foundation committee has been watching the expanding humanitarian crisis in Ukraine and knows many clubs are offering support through the Red Cross or ShelterBox to name two. These offer immediate support to the victims.  For Rotary Clubs looking to provide support for the Ukraine we are suggesting the following three recommendations:

# 1 - In response to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, the Rotary Foundation has made available the Disaster Response Fund as the main avenue for contributions.
Rotary International has the Disaster Response Fund set up where clubs can apply for Global Grants to help with the crisis. 

This will be the main avenue for Rotary Foundation support, but Rotary and Rotaract clubs are also encouraged to create their own responses to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine........                               Please Read more.......
