for Global & District Grants in the 2023-2024 Rotary Year

To participate in Rotary Foundation Programs including Global and District Grants during Rotary each year, a club is required to become certified/re-certified and accomplish the following four tasks:

  1. Each club President-Elect and Foundation Chair, or their representatives, are required to complete a district-sponsored Grant Management Seminar (GMS) or the Rotary.Org Learning Center online course.
  2. Club president and president-elect must sign a Memorandum of Understanding (Club MOU) per The Rotary Foundation
  3. Club president and president-elect must sign the District 7120 Addendum to the Club MOU, which is available on District 7120 website.
  4. Each club must adopt the document retention and financial management policies required by the MOU.
  5. Additionally, clubs must have donated $35 average per capita in the 2021-2022 Rotary year in order to qualify for grants in 2023-2024.  


In 2020-21 and following, participants may complete an online course offered by Rotary International. The course includes 9 modules that can be completed at the participant's own pace.  There is a recertification module for those who completed the online course in a prior year.  A participant can save and leave the site and pick up their training later at their own pace.  The course can be accessed as follows: Note many browsers and phones/tablets/laptops work a bit differently.

Sign into "My Rotary" at  (You may create an account if you do not already have a My Rotary account.)

Click on "Learning & Reference" header at mid-top of the page, then "Learning Center," then "The Rotary Foundation" View box.

A list of courses will appear.  

At the left on the 2nd row of courses, click on "Grant Management Recertification 2021" or "Grant Management Seminar."

Enroll in one of these courses.  The Recertification Course is only for those who completed the online course last year, and NOT for those who completed a live or Zoom District course in the past. 

The Grant Management Seminar has 9 modules.  Each module has a learning test at the end. 

Upon completion of the "Grant Management Seminar", or "Recertification Seminar," you will be able to print a completion certificate for each module and for the entire course.  Please email only the entire course certificate to
