You may wonder - How are Rotarians responding to the Covid-19 pandemic? Here is the response from Rotary International:
As people of action, Rotary members want to find ways to respond to COVID-19, and to help people affected by it. The Rotary Foundation offers several options that Rotarians can use to help care for and protect people in their own communities and others around the world.
Q: Can my district use district grants to fund COVID-19 related projects?
A: Yes, districts can use district grant funds to support local activities, like purchasing thermometers, protective medical gear, or other items to donate to medical professionals who need them. Districts can also use contingency funds from an open district grant or repurpose previously planned activities as a COVID-19 response.
Q: Can I use a global grant to fund COVID-19 related projects?
A: Yes. Global grants remain an excellent way to make a transformative impact in a community. If medical equipment is needed in order to respond effectively to COVID-19, global grants can help pay for these items. Note that global grant applications must adhere to standard eligibility requirements as noted in the grant terms and conditions and the area of focus policy statements.
Q: Can I apply for a disaster response grant for COVID-19 related projects?
A: No, disaster response grants are no longer available to support COVID-19 related projects.
Q: Can my club or district use Rotary Foundation grant funds to purchase COVID-19 vaccines?
A: No, Rotary Foundation grant funds may not be used to purchase COVID-19 vaccines. This restriction applies to district, global and disaster response grants.
For additional information, contact your regional grants officer.
Q: Will Rotary have a role to play in COVID-19 vaccinations?
A: Yes. Rotary will tap into its decades of experience in bringing polio to the brink of eradication, to highlight the power and efficacy of vaccines. Rotary’s tenacity, strategic partnerships, and innovation can all support the effort to protect communities from COVID-19.
Rotary and its partners at the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) recently announced that it is ready to support vaccine introduction and delivery. The group is also committed to equitable distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine and lending its support to ensure that all communities have equal access to vaccines.
More information and resources will soon be available for clubs and districts.
Q: Are the RI Board of Directors and Foundation Trustees taking action in regards to vaccines?
A: Yes, they are. At a recent joint session, the RI Board and Trustees created a joint task force that will develop and execute a plan to encourage Rotary and Rotaract clubs to support vaccinations.
Q: How can Rotary and Rotaractors get involved?
A: There are several ways members can get involved. Members can enhance community education on COVID-19 vaccinations by sharing information from local and regional health authorities and supporting their efforts. They should contact local health departments to determine where assistance is most needed. Moreover, members can connect with local health officials, including World Health Organization and UNICEF where applicable, to advocate for and support their efforts to ensure all communities receive equal access to the vaccine.
Q: What about vaccine misinformation and hesitancy? Are there ways to combat this?
A: Yes. Rotary is asking members to disseminate accurate, fact-based information as provided by local health agencies. It’s important to spread the word that vaccines work by using #vaccineswork in their social media postings. Highlight Rotary’s work on polio as a key example.
Members can invite medical professionals or local health officials to speak at club meetings. Try to also engage with local media, for example writing letters to the editor, in support of local efforts and vaccine safety and efficacy—using Rotary’s success in polio eradication as a proof point.
Q: COVID-19 is still spreading around the world. What should members do to help stop the spread?
A: Members need to continue to participate in projects that support mask wearing, social distancing, proper hygiene practices, and donations of personal protection equipment.
More importantly, members should lead by example, by wearing masks and practicing social distancing . Share images online that reflect these lifesaving behaviors. Get vaccinated. When the time arrives for you to receive the vaccine, share your experience online.

Rotarians help others in time of need. So many people are hungry and visiting food distribution centers and food banks who never have done so before. Our club was recently awarded a Rotary District Grant to help a local non profit, Serving You, for their food bank ministry.

Rotary members around the world are making an impact in the fight against COVID-19 with Rotary’s disaster response grants. They are supplying hospitals in Belgium, Croatia, and Italy with lifesaving ventilators. They’re equipping frontline health care workers in Korea, Nigeria, the Philippines, Spain, and the United States with desperately needed personal protective equipment. Because of this global need, The Rotary Foundation has increased the amount available for these grants from $1 million to $3 million. In the midst of such difficult and uncertain times, Rotary members around the world persevere. No challenge is so big that we can’t make a difference. Contribute: https://on.rotary.org/3e861WL
