Changes in District Grants for 2015-2016 year
Applications are due on or before June 1, 2015.
The Grants Committee will meet around July 15, 2015
The Spending Plan which lists all grants that the district desires to fund will be submitted to The Rotary Foundation by August 1, 2015
We should have approval of the Spending Plan by Sept 1, 2015 and will then provide official notice to clubs. Note that clubs cannot spend funds related to the grant until after they receive official notice of approval.
The per capita amount donated to the Foundation remains at $30 in order for a club to be qualified for a district grant.
The year upon which the per capita amount is calculated will change; it will be based upon the current year 2014-2015. That will allow any club make additional donations and qualify prior to the committee’s deliberation in mid-July. This also eliminates the need for a club with low per capita giving to partner with other clubs as they have time to achieve qualification on their own.

Program Ideas for Sharing
Some programs that have been interesting to the Unidilla club are:
-Thomas Sears and Radu Cristea presented about Faces of Freedom, Lives of Courage a book they wrote of first-hand accounts of life and persecution in communist Romania.
-Spence and Judy Gridley have an excellent program on the Discover America trip that the foreign exchange students go on in the summer.
-Don and Janice Tuttle can present on our club's current matching grant project - an educational project in Lesotho, Africa
-and, this is more general, but our high school does a musical every year and we've been inviting the students to do a command performance of a song or two at our meetings.
I hope to hear of other potential presentations from other clubs.
