The Rotary District 6360 Foundation was founded at the 1992
Rotary District conference and is governed by a board of
trustees who must be members of Rotary clubs located in the
District. Trustees are to be representative of the various
geographical areas of the District. New trustees are elected
annually for three year terms. The board of Trustees formally
meets four times a year but can provide more immediate response
Foundation's tax exempt status provides individuals and clubs
with the ability to raise and expend funds for Rotary sponsored
projects in a tax exempt manner if all 501c(3) tests are met.
Assistance to groups of two or more clubs and collaborations
with clubs elsewhere in the Rotary world is available. It can
provide assistance to individual clubs if there is an intention
to involve multiple clubs. Club activities will not qualify for
assistance unless there is a significant project component, as
determined by the Foundation, which contributes to those outside
the club or those activities qualify under a specific Foundation
As unrestricted Rotary District 6360 Foundation funds become
available, grants will be awarded to District Rotary applicants.
Funds will be solicited from District Rotary clubs, Rotarians,
corporations, individuals and other sources to fund these
grants. Generally, Rotary District 6360 Foundation Grants will
be made on a matching basis.
The Foundation will advise and assist any District club or clubs
interested in applying for Rotary International Foundation as
well as grants from foundations who are members of the Council
of Michigan Foundations. The Foundation will also offer
expertise and encouragement to clubs in their efforts to develop
projects of their choosing. Information will be made available
to help clubs anticipate the nuances and challenges encountered
in implementing projects.
Applications for monetary assistance from District clubs must be
made to the Rotary District 6360 Foundation in writing. A formal
application outlining needed information can be requested from
Foundation Trustees, the District office or download here.
Applications must indicate the needs and goals of the proposed
service project as well as the plan for meeting those
objectives. To exemplify the ideal of service above self, no
awards under programs supported by the Rotary District 6360
Foundation will be made to a District 6360 Rotarian, a Rotary
employee or a parent, grandparent, child, grandchild of a
Rotarian, or their spouses.
