應對COVID-19的獎助金選項(PDG Doctor提供)

可以使用3種獎助金因應COVID-19

 

國際扶輪理事當選人轉來扶輪基金會獎助金主任Director of Grants艾比Abby McNear通知地區扶輪基金會主委、獎助金小組主委可以使用3種獎助金因應COVID-19訊息如下:

 

敬愛的地區扶輪基金會主委,獎助金小組主委:

身為採取行動的人,扶輪社員希望應對猖獗全球的COVID-19 (新冠狀病毒),援助受害者。扶輪基金會提供社員在本身的社區和全球其他社區,幫助受害者並保護社區人士的措施。

地區獎助金

個地區可使用 地區獎助金資助購買體溫計,醫療人員的防護裝備,或捐贈醫人員認為必須的器具。地區也可以將未用的地區獎助金,或將以計畫使用於其他活動的資金,用於緊急資金來應對COVID-19。

當您為2020-21年度申請新的地區獎助金時,請將其指定給應對 COVID-19之用。僅這一次,基金會將准許在2020年3月15日以後所花,有關COVID-19 的費用,可自2020-21年度的地區獎助金付還。

災害救援獎助金以及扶輪的災害救援基金
扶輪的 災害救援獎助金 提供當地迅速且有效的應對災害的措施。扶輪基金會最近將COVID-19加入有資格的清單之中。各地區能申請一筆至多25,000美元的獎助金來應對 COVID-19,但這需看基金是否足夠。

災害救援獎助金是由扶輪災害救援基金 資助,幫助全球各地的地區應對災害。本基金接受線上捐獻及DDF的捐贈。地區可將 DDF 的捐贈指定給災害救援基金,以專用於COVID-19 獎助金。現金捐獻款將用於一般災害救援,包括 COVID-19。

全球獎助金

全獎助金 仍舊是轉化社區的最好方法。如果需要醫療器材來有效的應對COVID-19,您可使用全球獎助金。對支援COVID-19的全球獎助金,扶輪基金會免除國際贊助者必須支出30%的規定。

若有任何問題請洽詢 獎助金專員 。感謝您繼續支持行善天下的扶輪社員,特別是在如此困難的時期。

敬祝安好,

Dear district Rotary Foundation chairs and grants subcommittee chairs:

 

As people of action, Rotary members want to find ways to respond to COVID-19, which is now a global pandemic, and to help people affected by it. The Rotary Foundation offers several options that Rotarians can use to help care for and protect people in their own communities and others around the world.

 

District grants

Districts can use district grant funds to support local activities, like purchasing thermometers, protective medical gear, or other items to donate to medical professionals who need them. Districts can also use contingency funds from an open district grant or repurpose previously planned activities as a COVID-19 response.

 

As districts prepare to submit new district grant applications for 2020-21, we encourage you to designate funds for COVID-19 response. As a one-time exception, the Foundation will allow expenses related to COVID-19 that were incurred since 15 March 2020 to be reimbursed through 2020-21 district grants.

 

Disaster response grants and the Rotary Disaster Response Fund

Rotary’s disaster response grants provide a fast and effective way to respond to local events. The Rotary Foundation recently added COVID-19 projects to its list of eligible activities for these grants. Each district can apply for one grant (of up to $25,000) to address COVID-19, depending on the availability of funds.

 

Disaster response grants are funded by the Rotary Disaster Response Fund to help districts around the world respond to disasters. The fund accepts online contributions and DDF. Districts may designate their DDF contributions to the Disaster Response Fund to be used exclusively for COVID-19 grant activities. Cash contributions will be used for general disaster response, including response to COVID-19.

 

Global grants

Global grants remain an excellent way to make a transformative impact in a community. If medical equipment is needed in order to respond effectively to COVID-19, global grants can help pay for these items. The Foundation is waiving the 30 percent foreign financing requirement for any new global grant that addresses COVID-19.

 

Please contact Grants staff members if you have questions. Thank you for all your work to support Rotarians who are Doing Good in the World, especially during this challenging time.

 

Sincerely,

 

Abby McNear

Director of Grants
