Following the introduction of the New Grants Model into the Rotary Foundation worldwide, the clubs in District 1210 have risen to the challenge to take part. 51 clubs have made applications for District Grant Funds to support their projects. 34 projects are being considered with some being the collaboration between a number of clubs. There are 14 International Projects and 20 Local Projects with a total value of £36,000 (US$57,000).
Many of the clubs who are taking part have either never undertaken a Foundation Grant Project or have not done so for many years.
Ashley Gray the District Foundation Chair Designate said ‘It is a great credit to both the clubs and The Rotary Foundation, without the simplification of the Grant structure and application forms some of these projects would not take place’
