Overview of the SRWC Philanthropy Program
The Sunriver Women’s Club awards grants to support nonprofit agencies whose work primarily provides basic necessities in south Deschutes County to women, children, families and seniors. Basic necessities consist of food, shelter, health, clothing, education, child development and care. These grant awards are made possible through the fundraising efforts of the Sunriver Women’s Club and the generous support of the Sunriver community and surrounding areas.
The SRWC Annual Grant Program
The 2021 Annual Grant Program has been modified to be responsive to changing community needs given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on your programs. We are implementing a streamlined grant application process with three deadlines.
For programs that are contingent on the Governor’s restrictions being lifted, please do not apply until you are reasonably sure that the proposed program will go forward. There is not a maximum grant size, however, grants have ranged from $1,000 to $5,000 with the average grant approximately $2,500.
The grant application has nine questions to be submitted along with the agency’s most recent financial statements.
To apply, please see click on the following links:
Reporting for Current Grantees:
Agencies receiving grants from the SRWC in 2020 are required to provide reports to inform the SRWC Philanthropy Committee of progress toward their goals and inform the committee of any concerns in meeting grant deliverables as stated in their award agreement.
Please use the following reporting forms:
As a new initiative of the SRWC, the Power of 100+ is a separate and distinct effort from our annual grant program allowing us to fund a larger, one-time project through direct contributions. Based upon the 100 Women Who Care program, SRWC members vote to select the sponsored project and then support it with their $100 donation. Each year one project will be selected to receive a $10,000+ contribution as our signature Power of 100 Project. Proposals are not being accepted at this time.
The COVID-19 Nonprofit Fund
On March 29, 2020, the SRWC set up an COVID-19 Nonprofit Fund, soliciting donations to support nonprofits struggling to continue to provide much needed services to those impacted by the virus, isolation, job loss, etc. during this difficult time.
The SRWC COVID-19 Fund has disbursed $36,000 to agencies serving south Deschutes County from April through October. There is not an application process - rather, members of the SRWC Philanthropy Committee are continuing to assess community need and the extent to which our local network of services is able to meet the need.
If you have information on specific COVID related need in south Deschutes County, please share with the Philanthropy Team at email@example.com.
