Dear Rotarian , Rotaractors and the whole Rotary family in District 7070,

As a Canadian District Regional Foundation Committee Chair, you know it's getting tougher to secure funding from The Rotary Foundation for Rotary projects. The requirements are increasingly demanding, and the amounts available for grants are being squeezed. Fortunately the Canadian Rotarian Water Foundation is here to help!

We are still offering up to $10,000 (CAD) or 10% of the value (whichever is less) of any WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) project focusing on a hospital, clinic or other health care facility, in which a Canadian Rotary club plays a leading role.......

Rotary Club of Windsor, working with the RC of Wa, in Ghana received $10,000. The Rotary Club of La Salle Centennial and the Rotary Club of Niagara-on-the-Lake both received financial support for their projects in Malawi.

Your club could be next!

Better still - if a club submits a proposal for a WASH Global Grant to the WASH Rotary Action Group prior to filing with The Rotary Foundation, you can receive a donation of $2000 to the project.

Why? Preparing a proposal for a Global Grant is a complex, often time consuming and difficult process. Proposals frequently go back and forth between TRF and the applicant several times before being accepted. A review by WASH-RAG experts, all well versed in Global Grants, will streamline the process. We can help you anticipate many of the questions raised by TRF. Community assessments, plans for on-going funding for O&M, provision for Monitoring and Evaluation, all required by TRF, are part of the DNA of these WASH experts!

CRWF reserves the right to reject applications if the proposed project is not compatible with Rotary International's WASH Area of Focus or does not support the WASH Rotary Action Group's mission to support Rotary clubs and/or districts.

If you would like more information, please contact one of the undersigned.

Yours in Rotary
