|Future Vision Plan 2012-13|
|Since July 2010 The Rotary Foundation has been piloting a new grant model to better support club and district humanitarian and educational projects. The new model is referred to as the Future Vision Plan.|
Why was it adopted?
The Foundation trustees identified a need to streamline its operations for improved efficiency and to focus its efforts to achieve greater impact and public recognition.
When does it start?
In July 2010 100 Rotary districts began to test the plan as part of a three year pilot. All districts will adopt the new model in July 2013.
Under the new model there will be two grants - District Grants and Global Grants.
District Grants allow districts to access 50% of their District Designated Funds (previously 20%). For example, if a district's DDF was $60,000 the district will now be able to access $30,000 (previously $12,000). The district manages and disburses these funds to support district and club sponsored activities such as vocational training teams, scholarships and humanitarian projects.
Global Grants offer opportunities to participate in larger projects with support from the Foundation ranging from $US 15,000 to $US 200,000. Global grants fund large humanitarian projects, vocational teams and scholarships the have sustainable, measurable outcomes.
Clubs and districts can either create their own projects or sponsor packaged grants developed by the Foundation together with its strategic partners.
Club and District developed Global Grants
If a project is funded from its District Designated Fund (DDF) allocation, the Foundation will match 100% of the allocation.
For example, if a project has a budget of $30,000 the district will provide $15,000 from its DDF and the Foundation will match with $15,000.
If the same project is funded other than by use of a District Designated Fund allocation, the Foundation will provide a 50% match. For example, if a project has a budget of $30,000 the district or club will provide $20,000 and the Foundation will match with $10,000.
Packaged Global Grants
These grants are developed by the Foundation and its strategic partners - organizations that can offer financial support, technical expertise or advocacy.
For packaged global grants, the Foundation and the strategic partner provide 100% of the funding and Rotarians implement the grant project. Packaged grant options will be published online as they become available.
Areas of Focus
After examining the range of humanitarian issues that Rotarians address worldwide, the Trustees of the Foundation identified six areas in which clubs and districts could best achieve substantive, quantifiable results. All projects, scholars and vocational training teams should work toward specific goals within one or more of the areas of focus. The areas of focus are:
• Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution
• Disease Prevention and Treatment
• Water and Sanitation
• Maternal and Child Health
• Basic Education and Literacy
• Economic and Community Development
To be eligible for a global grant, projects must be sustainable - they must keep on giving long after the funds have been disbursed and Rotarian involvement has ended. When developing new projects, clubs and districts should emphasise training and the exchange of information so communities can maintain results and solve problems on their own.
District Grants have no restrictions on the level, length or area of study. Districts may develop their own criteria for selecting scholars, determine the amount of the award and may support students attending local universities as there is no international requirement.
Global Grants support international graduate level study related to an area of focus for one to four years. The Foundation determines the criteria for selection.
Vocational Training Teams
Vocational Training Teams can be supported by either District Grants or Global Grants.
District Grant sponsored teams are similar to Group Study Exchange but have no restrictions on participant age or length of exchange.
Global Grant sponsored teams travel abroad to address or learn how to address problems in one or more of the areas of focus. These teams comprise one Rotarian team leader and three non-Rotarians. There is no maximum team size or age restriction but all team members should have relevant professional skills and experience.
Qualification and Stewardship
Grant Application Process
All district and global grant applications must be submitted online.
Training and Resources
During the coming year each club must take action to train, qualify and prepare.
During 2012-13 District 9790 will be providing training for all clubs in the district to assist in their preparation and qualification.
Things you can do to Prepare:
• Select a Rotary Foundation Committee Chair who will hold that position for the next three years.
• The Foundation Chair and other club representatives (such as the club president) must attend the grant management seminar if your club has any thought of applying for a district or global grant.
• Become familiar with the Club Memorandum of Understanding.
• Access the e-learning modules and other information on The Rotary Foundation website.
