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 and a US$0.50 match for every new $1 cash contribution. 

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.

Clubs are encouraged to work with the district committee when developing a project. Members of the committee will be willing to assist clubs as mentors.
