Global Outlook on the new Rotary Foundation Funding Model

Beginning 1 July Rotary launches a new, ie updated, Rotary Foundation funding model, with the biggest impact being the requirement for a 5% surcharge on all cash contributions towards Global Grants - when the funding is first sent through the Foundation for processing.

Contributions sent directly to the project bank account are not assessed this surcharge. In our case in China since we cannot satisfy all of the requirements to receive the money from TRF, it must go to an account managed by our overseas partner.

For a clearer picture how this works and how the Foundation's Annual Funding process works, you can scan through the new "Global Outlook: The Rotary Foundation Funding Model" below, or download the publication as a PDF here.
