These policies have been adopted as consensus policies by the entire DG 2020-2024 DG Team and are generally applicable to Rotary District 5010 activities, officers, committees, and members.  The intent is to codify and clarify current practice into consistent policies.   Any deviation from these policies should be first approved by the current District Governor.
Excess Reserves
District 5010 may optionally provide funding for certain District infrastructure improvement projects and for District-wide projects that have a long-term District-wide positive impact upon our state and its communities. 
At this time, Excess Reserves policy discourages funding of projects that are basically the sorts of club-level projects traditionally undertaken by one or a small group of clubs. Funding for such traditional club-level projects should be sought from the normal Spring DDF grants process.
Excess Reserves policy will likely be reviewed in the foreseeable future and the following Excess Reserves scoring protocol is provided as a guide to current policy and restrictions regarding approval of Excess Reserves funding requests.  Any such policy changes will be posted if and when made.
