The Sunriver Women's Club Philanthropy Committee awarded $34,000 to 15 non-profit organizations serving South Deschutes county at its Annual Giving Luncheon on April 16, 2017.
The SRWC focuses its charitable awards on non-profit
organizations whose work primarily benefits those organizations meeting the basic needs (i.e. health, food, shelter, clothing and education) of the underserved population residing in the South Deschutes County area.

Thank you for joining us in celebrating the 2017
SRWC grant recipients and the results of the SRWC’s fundraising throughout the year. The luncheon presented the 15 recipients, spotlighting their programs/projects addressing basic needs in the community.
The Philanthropy Committee oversees the selection of grant recipients and the distribution of the charitable funds raised by SRWC over the previous year.
Beginning in the fall, grant applications are solicited from local nonprofits, and in winter the 9 member Committee researches the received applications. The Committee contacts all applicants and reviews proposals, ultimately making recommendations to the SRWC Board. The Board awards the grants in the spring, with emphasis given to organizations that work with and for women, children and families.
Please contact Shirley Olson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SRWC Grants are awarded on a yearly basis. The SRWC views these charitable awards not as gifts, rather as investments in the betterment of our community.
The allocation of funds will be based on demonstrated need, how the funds will be used and their potential impact.
The 2017 Grant Application is not avaialable yet.

Winter Wear –
The project is finally coming to a close. Patty thought she was done last month but received additional donation money. She ended up having to make 4 delivery trips to the Rosland School because we had so much "stuff." The total amount of money collected was $1526 and the total number of items donated was 557. In her final report she will give a complete listing of the items donated. In addition, the philanthropy committee asked if she could come up with a dollar value so they could include it in their yearly donations (rough estimate = $2678 value of items donated plus $1526 in cash donated equals $4204)!
Because of our loyal members and fundraising activities the following non-profit organizations received grants:
Assistance League of Bend
Council on Aging of Central Oregon
Family Access Network
Holy Trinity Outreach
LaPine Community Kitchen
LaPine Park & Recreation
Newberry Habitat for Humanity
Rising Stars Preschool
SRCF, Partners in Education
Sunriver Music Festival
Sunriver Nature Center
Three Rivers School
