The Wilmington Rotary Club conducts many projects, large and small. The following links provide details about some of our larger multi-year efforts. Our projects originate with suggestions or requests from our members. To fund these projects, we typically rely on a combination of grants, some from our club's own non-profit foundation, and some from The Rotary Foundation, through District Grants and Global Grants. Our club's grant request form is available for download; see below.

The Wilmington Rotary Club supports its projects through grants from two non-profit foundations. Our club's own foundation is supported by regular contributions from members, and by our annual fund-raiser. The Rotary Foundation, charitable arm of Rotary International, provides additional grants for both local and international projects.
Members of the club are encouraged to submit requests for funding each budget year. The club's grants committee evaluates these proposals and recommends those it considers most compatible with the club's goals and with Rotary's six areas of focus. The president, with approval from the club's Board of Directors, decides which grant requests to submit for District Grants from The Rotary Foundation, and which for local grants from our club's own foundation. Many projects are funded by both foundations.
