Rotary Foundation funding is released to Districts for financing grants, 3 years after they were contributed.
Our 2018-19 TRF giving, comes back as DDF in 2021-22.
We are today $130,000 behind in contributions and this means that funding for District and Global grants in 2021-22 will be $75,000 less than for 2020-21.
As more clubs access DDF for their humanitarian projects, our nominated DG for 2021-22 Lindsay May is alarmed that there will be many unhappy but well meaning Rotarians who will not be able to fund grants as they did in the previous year.
Contributions this year have understandably been impacted by drought appeals, and rightly so. 
We all hope that conditions will improve for our farmers but once we reach June 30 2019 we cannot add any funds that provide the valuable match to boost overall grant funding in 2021-22.
Personal giving is tax deductible.
Please give now to ensure we can maintain our good works in 3 years time.
Lindsay May DGNn 2021-22
