District Foundation Chair

Howard Svigals

Foundation Training is directly related to how our District performs in annual contributions to the Foundation - the more our members understand our Foundation and all the good it does in our world the more they will be inclined to support what is our very own charity. Attendance is required of any club planning on requesting a Community Grant or Global Grant.

District Foundation Training Seminars are open to all Rotarians with the primary audience being those members of a club that will be authoring a Global Grant application &/or members of the club Grant team.  Club Foundation Chairs, Assistant Governors and of course, new members to Rotary are invited to attend. Sessions include Basic Foundation, Community Grants, Fundraising, Grant/Project Management, and application processes.

 Two options for Grant Management Training for the 2000 - 2021 Rotary year, in-person and online.

This training is required for both Global and District Community Grants.  As a reminder Grant Management Training is required each year, Grant Writers currently qualified for 2019 to 2020 must requalify for 2020 – 2021.

The in-person training will be in Lakewood, September 21 and in Nanaimo, October 27. Training at both locations will run from 10 AM till 2 PM. Each location is limited to 40 people, first come, first served. Please include name, club, email, phone and training location when registering. There will be no lunch nor lunch break. Coffee and Costco type snacks will be available, feel free to bring coffee and your own lunch or snack.
The Lakewood training will be at Clover Park Vocational College, but not be in our previous site, the Rotunda. Lakewood training will be in classroom 112 in the McGavick Center building. Nanaimo training will be at VIU. Further directions will be sent to registered attendees.
The online training will be available later this fall and, in enough time, to complete prior to grant opening. The current existing online training is only for qualification for 2019 - 2020, it will not qualify you for 2020 – 2021.
