District Club Grants

District Club Grant projects support short-term, humanitarian projects that benefit local or foreign communities. Once a year, a club may request grant funds for a project or may collaborate with another club's project. There is a maximum of five clubs per project.
You are encouraged to be creative and select projects that meet special needs in your local or global community. Some projects done in the past include: refurbishing playgrounds and parks,  books for literacy projects, supporting youth development projects, assisting with a family health festival, collecting and purchasing food for a food bank, providing dental care in Honduras, and providing clean water to foreign villages.
The District Grants Committee reviews each grant application for the appropriateness of the project based on Rotary International's humanitarian guidelines. Upon approval, clubs will be matched on a dollar for dollar basis up to $2,500, based on the amount of funds available and the number of grant requests. 
Please adhere to the following deadlines when applying for a District Club Grant:
  • March 15, 2019 - Grant Intention Forms Due (Must be signed by 2019-20 Club President)
  • April 30, 2019 - Full DCG Application Due

Mount Joy Clock is Dedicated

During the Mount Joy Borough Winterfest on Saturday, December 1, the Rotary Clock was rededicated to the community. At 6:45, the Rotary Club of Mount Joy, led by Randy Wolgemuth, dedicated the Clock to the people of Mount Joy. Mayor Timothy Bradley Jr. acknowledged the importance of the clock as a centerpiece of Borough life and community events.
Throughout the year, the Rotarian’s in Mount Joy sought funding to refurbish the clock and restore the outer case. It once again stands proudly at the corner of Main Street and Marietta Avenue. Clockmaker, Bob Durochers of Lititz did the work on the clock updating the interior workings and ensuring the decorative paint work would stand the test of time.
For more details and pictures, review the Mount Joy Rotary Club’s Facebook page.  If you are interested in being a guest at either the Tuesday noon or Thursday evening meetings call Mark Rorabaugh at 717-653-4717.

Youth Exchange Short-Term Exchange Program

In a Summer Cultural Exchange, students spend three to six weeks in their host country visiting with another family and seeing another part of the world. The Short-term Exchange Program arranges for the student's family to host a matching student from another country in return.  This program provides an excellent opportunity to experience a new culture in a brief period of time. Like the long-term exchange, the short-term exchange requires a sponsoring Rotary Club in each country, and students are selected on the basis of a written application and interview process.
Parents should be prepared to cover the cost of travel, health insurance and a few other costs for the STEP student. Candidates should complete an application and submit it their sponsoring Rotary Club. Remember - all applications MUST BE TYPED and signatures on the application MUST be in BLUE INK. The sponsoring Rotary Club will hold an interview and, if appropriate, send the student to the District Interviews/training session on January 26, 2019.
You can find more information regarding the Short-Term Exchange Program, please click here!
