Rotary Foundation Global Grants Seminar:
If you want to change the human condition for the better, then engage in a Rotary Global Grant (GG). Rotarians are committed to serving others above self and GGs are designed to help accomplish this goal through helping to eradicate poverty, diseases, illiteracy and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact on individuals and communities worldwide (RF Goals). The Rotary Foundation is a source of monetary support along with the tools and staff to help get a GG up and running. This seminar will focus on using learning centered techniques to help engage participants in the learning process to deepen your understanding of what it takes to develop an idea into an actual grant and functioning project.

The 2017 Float promotes and celebrates the 100 years of The Rotary Foundation. The Foundation empowers Rotarians to travel throughout the world and create and complete projects which serve people in need in six areas of focus which are: promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies. The spectacular and colorful dragon is clearly a world traveler carrying luggage decorated with the six symbols of the areas of focus. The Dragon also is proudly wearing a necklace with a medallion marked 100 for the 100 years of service.
