11 The Rotary Foundation (TRF) Is Rotary’s only Charity and is funded by donations from clubs, Rotarians and individuals, either during their lifetime or by bequests

14 WHO SPENDS IT? You do! Each district currently receives back 50 % of the giving which they made 3 years ago (Called the DDF funds)

15 Why DDF currently 50% ? The other 50% (The World Fund) is to pay for some other district programmes costs such as:- GSE team The “other” half of a “Matched” Grant & District Simplified grants - etc

16 DDF ?  D istrict D esignated F und REMEMBER  There is no WE and there is no THEY  It is US who say WHAT we spend and HOW we spend it

17 So What does DDF DO? It allows us all to undertake bigger and well controlled projects to meet the NEEDS of those we care to SERVE It has allowed, and continues to allow us to be personally involved in building a Better World working with clubs Internationally

18 The Rotary Foundation You share in the spending decision making:  Your contributions are used for programmes THREE years after they were received by the Rotary Foundation  Three year cycle allows the Foundation to invest your contribution to pay for all administration, programme operations, and fund development costs  Three year cycle gives Districts time for planning and selection for the District’s choice of programme awards
