MEMBERSHIP

Visit the Membership area of the RI website for tips and tools to attract, recruit and retain active, vibrant Rotarians. Many areas of the RI website will require log-in to MyRotary.org.

New Member PROPOSAL
The recent Council on Legislation simplified the language regarding potential member qualifications, replacing the previous wording with the statement, “A person of good character.” This single page New Member Proposal form incorporates that language into a simplified document that includes a checklist for bringing new members into a club. Individual club bylaws and practices may vary.

MyRotary & DACdb ACCESS
Two of our most important tools for Rotary communication, education and reference are DACdb.com and MyRotary.org. All Rotarians should be registered users of both sites. In fact, for a few years, the annual RI Presidential Citation has included an element for clubs to have a targeted percentage of their members registered at MyRotary. This single page document walks new members through the process of MyRotary registration as well as first time log-in and profile updates for DACdb. It is ideal to share with new members as part of their Rotary orientation.

PUBLIC RELATIONS

Visit the Rotary Brand Center for logos, forms, letterhead, business cards, and recent news stories. Many areas of the RI website will require log-in to MyRotary.org.

THE ROTARY FOUNDATION

Visit The Rotary Foundation (TRF) to learn more about programs, accomplishments and areas of focus. Many areas of the RI website will require log-in to MyRotary.org. MyRotary will also allow individuals to access their own personal history of giving to The Rotary Foundation.

Club Memorandum of Understanding
In addition to having attended the most recent annual Foundation Grants Workshop (part of District Assembly), clubs are required to submit this Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), acknowledging an understanding of TRF Grant funding guidelines and pledging governance of funds.

Completed MOU must be signed by the club president for the “spending” year (i.e., current president, if submitted during the project year; president- elect, if submitted prior to the project year). Only one signature is required. Submit to District Grants Chair.

District Grant Application
Use this simple, one-page form to request up to 50% of your club’s available DDF money to be used toward an eligible DISTRICT Grant project. Participating clubs must have had a representative attend the most recent annual Foundation Grants Workshop (part of District Assembly) and submitted the MOU form (above).

Complete the DISTRICT Grant Application Form and submit to District Grants Chair as indicated at bottom of form.

DDF Transfer Form
Use this simple, one-page form to transfer DDF to another club’s project. Up to 50% of your club’s available DDF may be transferred to a qualifying DISTRICT Grant project. All available DDF may be transferred to a qualifying GLOBAL Grant project. Clubs may also opt to transfer any portion of their DDF to PolioPlus. Please note that transfers to PolioPlus are not credited as individual club giving, since the money was already recognized as part of the club’s original gift to TRF Annual Fund three years prior.

Complete the DDF Transfer Request and submit to District Grants Chair as indicated at bottom of form.
