Club/Membership Actively Contributes to the Annual Programs Fund of The Rotary Foundation. President Elect or Club Representative attended current year’s PETS – or was excused by and received training approved by the GovernorElect. Club Memorandum of Understanding If a Club wishes to participate in Global or Packaged Grants, it must agree to implement the financial and stewardship requirements in this MOU. If a club wishes to participate in District Grants, it must agree to implement the financial record keeping and retention of required documents. (application and final report w/receipts) Setting up these procedures now, even if a Global or Packaged Grant is not foreseen, will expedite future grant participation. It’s just a good idea.
