全球獎助金──主要聯絡人 / GRANTS-primary contacts

親愛的處於草擬、需要授權及已提交狀態的全球獎助金申請案主要聯絡人:
 

2020-21年度的全球獎助金(Global Grant)有一項重大改變。
 

全球獎助金計畫自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。
 

以下為目前處理進度的申請案因此一決議所受到的影響:
 

狀態

行動

草擬

7月1日當天處於草擬狀態的申請案不會獲得世界基金現金捐獻的配合款。

需要授權

7月1日當天處於需要授權狀態的申請案會獲得世界基金現金捐獻的配合款。

已提交

7月1日當天處於已提交狀態的申請案會獲得世界基金現金捐獻的配合款。

 

已核准的申請案則不會有任何改變。
 

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,請寫信給您的區域(地域)獎助金職員regional grant officer

 

祝 鈞安

Dear primary contacts for global grant applications in draft, authorizations required, and submitted status:

 

An important change is being implemented to global grant funding.

 

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.

 

Here's how applications currently in progress will be impacted by this decision:

 

Status

Action

Draft

Applications in draft status on 1 July will not receive a World Fund cash match.

Authorizations Required

Applications in authorizations required status on 1 July will receive a World Fund cash match.

Submitted

Applications in submitted status on 1 July will receive a World Fund cash match.

 

There will be no changes for approved applications.

 

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.

 

If you have questions, write to your regional grants officer.

 

Sincerely,

Abby McNear

Director of Grants
