Transforming Initiatives into Realities

Whether it is a local service project or an international program, Rotary Foundation grants can help you make a difference

District grants fund small-scale, short-term activities that address needs in our district and communities abroad. Each district chooses which activities it will fund with these grants.

Global grants support large international activities with sustainable, measurable outcomes in Rotary’s areas of focus. By working together to respond to real community needs, clubs and districts strengthen their global partnerships.

The Rotary Club of Anaheim Foundation provides grants for local projects, youth organizations and recognition. Grants include food distribution, teacher awards, support for YMCA, Boys and Girls Clubs, Cop 4 Kids, and Halo Awards. Halo Awards recognize Anaheim High School youth. Local Rotary Projects are highlighted on the Projects Page and include Adopt -A-Neighborhood, and Backpacks for Kids.
