Global Grants Overview

Global Grants replace Matching Grants effective July 1, 2013.  Global are sponsored by two clubs or districts: a host partner in the country where the activity takes place and an international partner outside the country. The minimum project budget for District 5450 sponsored Global Grants is $35,000. 

Clubs are encouraged to develop Global Grants for humanitarian projects with their host partner.
When planning a project, sponsors should conduct a thorough needs assessment that explores the pressing needs in the project location along with the club and community resources available to address them. 

Once the project has been developed, a proposal should be submitted to the District for review.  Once the review is complete, the sponsoring club can begin to write the Grant application online at the RI website.

District 5450 also plans to sponsor two scholarships per year using Global Grants.
