GREAT NEWS – Funding of Club Projects
Have you ever had this experience? A member of your club initiated a very good project but your club does not have sufficient fund for it. The member is so enthusiastic about it and you are reluctant to turn him/her down. Where can you get the additional funding?
In this Rotary Year 2014-15, thanks to our District Dignitaries and dedicated Rotarians for their contributions and donations, we are very lucky to have at least TWO Funding sources: i) District Grant from our District Rotary Foundation Committee chaired by PDG Peter Wan; and ii) a newly introduced Service Above Self Matching Grant (SASMG) from the SASMG Committee chaired by PDG Peter Wong.
The total District Grants funds available is about US$128,464. US$50,000 of the District Grants has been reserved for scholarship and vocational training teams. (…read more)
