honestly assess their motivation to oversee the
effort
D5000 will match Club cash 2:1 in 2013-2014 …

Decisions, Decisions
• Previous system dictated split between Local and
International projects
– TRF limited total local projects to 20% of DDF
– New limit is 50% of total DDF … tough to get there
• Global Grants receive TRF match
– With 2:1 DDF match, minimum of 5.5:1 leverage!!
– But … Projects must be larger (minimum of ~$30,000)
• Clubs must now choose how to split limited
resources
So What’s Up with the
Qualification?
• Previously … TRF controlled all projects
– Reviewed all completion reports … including DSG
– System began overwhelming limited TRF staff
• Now … Districts and Clubs control larger portion
– District Grant completions now District responsibility
– Clubs must qualify to appropriately handle larger amounts of
funds
