Existing Contributions Towards This Project
District 5340 DDF
Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
Beginning to enter this Global Grant application to this site today. An issue unrelated to this application is temporarily blocking submission to TRF; the District and TRF are working on it. Will submit this Global Grant application as soon as that issue is resolved.
