D6330 Use of Government of Canada Funds
(from the December 1, 2018 Issue of the Zone "Beyond Borders" Newsletter - read the full issue here)
This article written by PDG Doug Burnard, DRFC District 6330, Zone 24 East is featured in this month's Zone Newsletter - take a look to learn more about how our Canadian clubs can take advantage of  Government of Canada grants for international projects.
Clubs in District 6330 have been doing International Projects for many years through the Matching Grants Program and now the Global Grants program. D6330 has always been a strong supporter of The Rotary Foundation so the DDF was enough to provide support for the International projects, at least one Ambassadorial (now Global) Scholar annually and some District Grants.
The change in The Rotary Foundation guidelines, which provide for up to 50% of the District Designated Fund can be made available to Clubs for District Grants has resulted in an increase from a few community projects to 40 or more annually in the District. Over 50% of D6330 Clubs participate in one or more District Grants.
Rotary Learning and Development
At this time of year we appoint our club officers and directors for the 2019-2020 Rotary year - it's good to know that new online training is available for club committees.
Rotary International has launched a redesigned Learning Center, and your new club officer courses are now ready.
Building our Future Together!
Have you considered taking your talent and skills and utilizing them in a role beyond  your  Club.   We are looking for Rotarians who are interested in future roles at the District Level or beyond.  What about chairing a District Committee, being part of the AG team, Support Membership, promoting our Rotary Foundation or being a Champion for the Eradication of Polio. We want you!
During this year we would like to hold some informal information sessions around the District to help answer your questions, assist you with your future plans and help us plan for the future Leadership in our District.
Please contact PDG Diane Chantler at to express your area of interest and your Club name.  We will contact you as we schedule our information sessions.
Let’s build our future Together!
