Note from our Foundation Chairperson:

Dear Club Presidents and Club Foundation Chairs in District 7950


The Rotary Foundation Committee would like you to be aware of some recent changes in regard to the District Grants Committee and where to send your District Grant applications. 


Governor Steve Albright has appointed Jean Sullivan, the new District Grants Chair. 

Qualified clubs should send all new District Grant requests Jean at


If your club did submit an application or final report for 2018-2019 to the previous District Grants Chair, Chris Van Hemelrijck we would appreciate it that you resend them to Jean. 

This will assure that we have all the applications for the committee to review in the next few weeks.


District Grants are reviewed on a rolling basis beginning in August. 

Grants will be approved on a first come first served basis until all the money has been allocated. 

The committee  has extended the deadline to apply for a grant to September 16, 2019 due to the appointment of a new District Grant's Chair.
