全球獎助金的重大改變 / GRANTS

親愛的地區總監、地區總監當選人、地區扶輪基金會主委、及地區獎助金小組委員會主委:

2020-21年度的全球獎助金有一項重大改變。
 

        全球獎助金(Global Grant)計畫自2013年開辦至今,一直非常成功,以驚人的速度不斷成長。然而,這種成長表示我們預期對全球獎助金的需求將會大幅超過世界基金(World Fund)的負擔能力。
 

        有鑑於此,扶輪基金會保管委員會已決議世界基金的資源將只用於對地區指定用途基金(DDF)捐獻提供配合款,配合款的比例仍維持為100%。自2020年7月1日起,將會取消對獎助金的現金捐獻提供配合款。在7月1日當天,已經提出但尚未批准的全球獎助金申請案,其現金捐獻仍可獲得世界基金的配合款。
 

        年度基金(Annual Fund)的捐獻將會投資用於地區指定用途基金及世界基金。支持獎助金的現金捐獻則不會。社員支持年度基金,可確保地區指定用途基金及世界基金有穩定的資源可挹注於改變他人生命的全球獎助金計畫。
 

        此外,由於扶輪社員因應COVID-19大流行的努力,我們已經用完今年度全球獎助金的預算。當大流行蔓延時,扶輪社員紛紛採取行動,也讓全球獎助金的申請增加了33%。這真的激勵人心。請各位瞭解儘管核准程序已經暫停,我們仍然持續在審核申請書,以便7月1日恢復核准獎助金時可以準備就緒。
 

        請與你的扶輪社分享這則重要訊息。如有疑問,請寫信至rotarysupportcenter@rotary.org。

 

祝 鈞安

GRANTS
 

Dear district governors, district governors-elect, district Rotary Foundation chairs, and district grants subcommittee chairs:

 

An important change is being implemented to global grant funding for 2020-21.

 

The global grant program has been very successful and has grown at an incredible pace since its launch in 2013. This growth, however, means that we expect the demand for global grants to dramatically exceed the capacity of the World Fund.

 

Because of this, the Trustees of The Rotary Foundation have decided that World Fund resources will be used to match only District Designated Fund (DDF) contributions. This match will remain at 100 percent. The match on cash contributions to grants will be eliminated, effective 1 July 2020. Global grant applications that have been submitted but not yet approved on 1 July will still receive the World Fund match for cash contributions.

 

Contributions to the Annual Fund are invested to produce DDF and the World Fund. Cash contributions in support of a grant do not. By supporting the Annual Fund, members can ensure a steady supply of both DDF and World Fund resources for the global grant projects that change people’s lives.

 

In addition, due to the incredible efforts of Rotarians to address the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve fully expended this year’s global grant budget. When the pandemic hit, global grant submissions rose 33% as Rotarians moved into action. It has truly been inspiring. Please know that despite this pause in approvals, we’ll continue reviewing applications so that we’re ready when we resume grant approvals on 1 July.

 

Please share this important information with your clubs. If you have questions, write to rotarysupportcenter@rotary.org.

 

Sincerely,

 

Abby McNear
