Good news.  The Rotary Foundation has approved the District’s Spending Plan, our application for District Grants based on projects from the Clubs.  All projects in the application were approved.

In total, over $90.000 of grant money will be forwarded to 41 projects.  The Club contributions to these projects are over $250,000, another example of how Rotary Clubs are making an impact in both the local community and internationally. 32 of this year’s projects are COVID 19 projects.  There were another 10 such projects paid out in June 2020 from last Rotary year’s funding.  Lists of all projects from both years will be posted on the District website.

The lead Club for each project will shortly receive the cheque for their project’s full grant amount.  The lead Clubs are also responsible for meeting the reporting requirements.
