Issues faced in Clubs with outstanding reports, project lead not assuming responsibility Confusion about Member Access Finding partners and fundraising (time consuming) Online system not user friendly, slow Clubs not paying attention to DDF requirements Host DGs and DRFCs taking too long to authorize online Proposals Clubs taking too long to submit their application, thus tying up DDF Clubs not listening to Grants Committee advice Clubs not communicating with their partners/GC/TRF Rotary District 7620 Grants Committee
You finally found a host club in a war and drought ravaged African country. This Rotary Club has struggled but is in desperate need of a Global Grant and they need you to partner with them. You agree and spend over 200 hours of project design, etc. Your Global Grant application is submitted to TRF and then you find out the club has 3 outstanding Final Reports. Your Global Grant is officially on hold until the Final Reports have been accepted by the TRF. Your host partner appears indifferent to this issue. What do you do? Rotary District 7620 Grants Committee Case Studies
You have a reliable host club, a great sustainable project, a responsive cooperating organization and an international club that supports you on every level. Your problem? You don’t have the resources to raise $50,000 in 6 months. What do you do? Rotary District 7620 Grants Committee Case Studies
Rotary District 7620 Grants Committee Case Studies You are engaged in a complex multi-year Global Grant which involves over $300,000 of club cash contributions and multiple district DDF from 5 countries. Interim reporting has been poor or non-existent and despite repeated attempts to get all countries to adhere to reporting guidelines, you have nothing but empty promises. You cannot apply for further grants until the reports are are in good order. Disappointed and de-moralized, your club decides it would be best to sever ties with all of your partners. Is this the best course of action to take?
