In my district travels I see fantastic ideas being delivered by Rotarian’s. If we can transfer these ideas around the district,not only will it enable cubs to increase there Public image within there communities, but will save time as we don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
So the aim is we collect the great ideas and best practices from around our district into the Initiative Library. Ideas will be collated into easy to implement action plans so clubs can start great ideas (without having to reinvent the wheel) remember sharing is caring.
All we are asking is for you to look at your Clubs ideas and fill out a simple template covering the following areas: – Project name, Areas of interest, Overview, What you did – step by step guide, Some frequently asked question. and a Summary
We will give regular update on the Library showing new and updated entries which you will be able to access 24 hrs a day. So please take some time and think how you can help Rotarian’s in our District to grow Rotary and connect the world.

Trying to raise funds for a project? Why not increase your donation network?
Crowdfunding is a means of getting donations for your project via the web from donors
literally across the World. A specific project with specific timelines and
goals. An on-line event for example selling tickets for a coffee morning.
Typically, the average
project donation target is £15,000 but an individual project target can start
from as little as £4,000.
Because of the success
of Rotary Clubs who have already
taken advantage of this relatively new way of raising funds to support their
projects, Rotary has agreed a special
start up initiative with the largest global Crowdfunding community for
non-profits, Global Giving, a
registered charity who have already helped to raise more than $345m from 814,095 Donors for 20,611
projects across 170 Countries.
Global Giving have agreed to allow Rotary to use their existing successful portal, training and support at a reduced cost of 8% which is deducted from donations received. GlobalGiving will also collect any Gift Aid on behalf of the project.
Crowdfunding is a way to go beyond our usual team of fundraisers and receive donations from individuals and Corporates Worldwide. One UK Rotary project has already received over $1,500 from American donors, who, receive tax benefits by donating through the Global Giving platform.
Membership opportunities – Advertising our projects on the web is also a great
way to promote our work and of course, people supporting our projects are
likely to make good Rotarians themselves.
