All District Wide Rotary Foundation Training: Grants Management Training

With the start of Future Vision grant model in the 2013-2014 Rotary year, there were new requirements for the clubs to meet in order to be certified to apply for a grant. At least two members (preferably one of the two is the Club President for 2014-2015) from a club must be trained and certified for the club to be able to submit a District Grant. Certification and training is only good for one year. Even though you may have been trained and certified last year, you need to attend this year if you plan on submitting a grant in 2014-2015. Andy Hagan, our Rotary Foundation District Chair, will facilitate the training sessions; sharing new highlights and modifications to the process and certifying clubs and members.

Join Leaders, Exchange Ideas and Take Action for Community.
