Rotary and Rotaract Clubs that want to apply for Global or District Grants must be qualified.  This is a requirement from the Rotary Foundation.  Club qualification is valid for one Rotary year.  Clubs must be qualified for the full time of the project.  This is particularly important for Clubs involved in a Global Grant project.   Those projects typically take more than one Rotary year from start to finish, so the Clubs must renew they qualification every year until the project is completed.  Ideally, we want all Clubs to be qualified every year.  The qualification process is a great way to learn more about the Rotary Foundation.

To qualify, a Club must have at least two of its members complete the qualification process.  In addition, the Club must submit an MOU to the District, signed by the President and President Elect.   Please Read more for details.............

For the 2023-24 Rotary year, we held a Foundation Qualification seminar in Oshawa  on Saturday, November 19, 2022.  This was a complement to the online process we have had for the last few years.  Close to 60 Rotarians from 23 Clubs participated in the November event.  15 Clubs had two or more members at the seminar, so they don’t need to have any members take the online training.  The other 8 Clubs must have at least one more member complete the online qualification.  Clubs that didn’t have any members at the seminar last November must use the online process.  All Clubs must submit the MOU to be qualified.

The qualification modules and quizzes for the 2023-24 Rotary year will be posted on the District’s website March 5, 2023.  At the same time, the application form for District Grant projects and the MOU will also be posted. 

Deadline for District Grant applications for the 2023-24 Rotary year is May 31, 2023.
