Through Global Grants, The Rotary Foundation matches contributions raised for international service projects in the six areas of focus by Rotary clubs and districts in two or more countries. District 5180 provides a one-to-one match from District Designated Fund (DDF) for every new $1 cash contribution. The Foundation provides a one-to-one match for District Designated Fund (DDF)/SHARE contributions. 

The Primary Contact person (POC) and all committee members have to be trained by completing the 9-module Grant Management Seminar on RI's Learning Center, printing the Diploma, and sending it to the Grant Subcommittee Chair.  In subsequent years, requalification is accomplished by completing the single Grant Management Recertification module.

Applications are made online year round.  All Rotary Foundation grants require the highest attention to stewardship. Progress reports must be submitted at least every 12 months for the life of the project. A final report is due within two months of the full expenditure of funds.

Global grant proposals must be submitted to the Grant Subcommittee Chair, along with their Community Assessment, for review prior to be submitting to TRF.  This review is intended to speed up the processing of global grants.  Any global grants that do not go through this process will not be approved by the Foundation Chair, nor by the District Governor.  Although the District Foundation Chair (and the District Governor, if DDF is involved) authorize grant applications prior to submission, TRF has final approval on all global grant applications.
