Local Projects via “CAP” Grants
|Rotary District 6060’s Community Assistance Program (CAP) provides an opportunity for our Rotary Clubs to use Rotary Foundation District Designated Funds (DDF) to undertake projects in local communities as a way of furthering Rotary’s objectives. District Designated Funds are equal to 50% of the donations made by our Rotarians three years ago.|
|In the 2019-2020 Rotary Year, District 6060 is budgeting $31,000 from The Rotary Foundation to offer to our clubs for CAP grant projects, which meet the program criteria. We plan to offer this in the form of $1,000 grants, to be matched with a minimum of $1,000 of your own club funds, to help your club fund a project of $2,000 or more. Smaller projects are acceptable; the match will equal club funds.|
|These funds should be community service projects that involve the active, personal participation of Rotarians. A club may opt to submit the same project up to three times, but we encourage club leaders to use the CAP Grant opportunity to address new issues and needs in their communities. The program is designed to encourage Rotarians to become more involved in their local communities and to strengthen their relationships with those communities. CAP projects must be Rotary Club sponsored, publicly identified as Rotary projects and of short duration.|
|When will clubs and districts be able to apply for grants for the 2019-20 Rotary year?
|Our district has had several CAP grants approved during the last several years.
