District Grants - October Update
Approval of District Grants
We have finalised the District Grants for the 2020/21 Rotary year and are pleased to advise the following clubs have been successful (with 2 clubs having applied for 2 district grants):
  • Awapuni (2)
  • Hutt River Valley
  • Hutt Valley
  • Johnsonville
  • Makino/ Feilding
  • Marton
  • NP North
  • Ngamotu
  • Porirua
  • Port Nic with Wellington North; Wellington; Mt Victoria; Porirua.
  • Port Nic 
  • Takaro
  • Whanganui North
  • Whanganui  (2)
This year, as with the last 2 years there have been more applications than money available.  This is partially due to the increased knowledge in clubs about the availability of grants, but more due to the slowly declining money available.  Grant money is directly related to the donations to the Foundation that are made 3 years previously, and without going into the exact detail we receive about ¼ of this money back to the district for distribution in grants.
Details of each application will be available through the District website and I look forward to seeing some of the interesting stories about the projects in the bulletin through the year.
