The Annual Grant Program

The Annual Grant Program supports nonprofit organizations providing essential services to women, children, families and seniors with the goal of developing a strong network of services in south Deschutes County that will improve the lives of our neighbors and have lasting impact in the community. 

The grant process is overseen by a nine-member committee responsible for soliciting grant applications from local nonprofits, conducting a thorough evaluation process and making a funding recommendation to the board of directors.  Committee members have diverse professional backgrounds combined with a history of philanthropic participation in their community.

We currently award grants that fall into two broad categories:

Food and Shelter

The SRWC grant program funds essential services that support our most vulnerable citizens designed to protect and improve the lives of women, children, families and seniors in our community.  47% of the grants awarded in 2020 supported programs providing food & shelter.
