10 March 2014 — DRFC David Moyers, PDG, The Global Grants Process







David Moyers, from the Rotary Club of Palos Verdes Sunset, served as the District Governor of Rotary District 5280 in 2007-2008.  He is currently in the middle year of a three-year term as District Rotary Foundation Chair, the person responsible for overseeing the process of Rotary Foundation grants at the Global and District level.

PDG David was kind enough to sit down with us and walk us through an overview of the Global Grants process, as we explored a hypothetical water project for the Rotary Club of Xanadu here in District 5280 (we said hypothetical, stay with us here), in partnership with the Rotary Club of Fenwick South in the tiny nation known as The Duchy of Grand Fenwick.  (Anyone who can explain that reference in the comments on this page would win a prize if we had one to offer, but you will certainly gain the admiration of Club Members and visitors if you are correct.)

There’s a lot to learn, so let’s get started.

  1. kuddos for finding a logo for Grand Fenwick. Are we talking Ron Moody or Peter Sellers?

  2. This interview is both fascinating and informative. Guided by the details in the hypothetical scenario, David Moyers provides the essential information needed to pursue a Global Grant. I, for one, intend to bookmark it so that if necessary, I can review it to refresh my knowledge of the process.

  3. Great program! Walking us through the entire process from start to finish, just brilliant!

  4. Hope to visit those cities one of these days… Very informative and easy to understand such a complex process!

  5. Great info! Thanks!
