Club Qualification Requirements
District 5450
Any District 5450 Club that sponsors a Global Grant or District Grant must be “qualified” for the grant to be approved.  Note that a Club need not be qualified to submit a draft application for review. 
Qualification requirements include:
  • Attendance at a grant management seminar by the Club President-elect or a designee for the year that the grant is requested. The Club Grants Chair and any club member interested in sponsoring Rotary Grants are encouraged to attend as well.
  • All Grant Reporting Current on Matching, Global and District Grants.
  • The Club must meet, in the previous Rotary year, a minimum $50 per capita giving to TRF to either the Annual Fund or PolioPlus
  • Special Rules for New Clubs or newly added Satellite Groups.
  • Club can track giving level to date through monthly District reports
  • A Club’s annual giving level will be determined in mid-July of the year for which the grant is requested based on the previous year-end report from TRF.
  • The District “Club Qualification” spreadsheet on the District website will show when a Club meets the minimum required level.
In addition, the following documents must be provided to the District:
  • Executed Club Qualification Memorandum of Understanding.  The MOU must be signed by the Club President and President-Elect for the year the grant application will be submitted.  The MOU confirms Club oversight of the grant project and agreement to meet all Rotary requirements.
  • Confirmation of the Club’s (not the Club's Foundation) most current filing of IRS Form 990 or its equivalent.
    • For those clubs filing 990-N send in a copy of the letter from the IRS showing receipt of the postcard.
    • For clubs who file 990-EZ or 990 send in a copy of the signature page of the return with the name of an officer of the club and their position either printed or signed in the signature block.
