    Dear Rotarians,

    Thank you for your application for Global Grant GG1418225 to provide training equipment to Typhoon Haiyan affected schools in Ormoc, Philippines.

    The Rotary Foundation understands that schools affected by Typhoon Haiyan are in desperate need of help. Regrettably, the project is not eligible for a global grant because it doesn’t meet the basic education and literacy goal and requirements stated in the Areas of Focus Policies, specifically:
    “Rotary supports activities and training to improve education for all children and literacy for children and adults.”
    “TRF considers activities targeting the following to be outside the scope of the basic education and literacy area of focus and as such are not eligible for global grant funding: 1. Projects that consist exclusively of equipment purchases. . .”

    The following concerns about the project also factored into the Foundation’s decision: this is a disaster relief project and does not improve the quality of education. As you develop future global grant projects, you may find the attached document Developing Sustainable Projects helpful.

    Despite the decision on your grant, there is no doubt that this is a worthwhile project. We encourage you to find other funding sources, such as district grant funds through your district leadership.

    We look forward to working with you on your future Rotary service projects.

    Respectfully,

    Hanae Kim
    Regional Grants Officer
    The Rotary Foundation
