SRWC Philanthropy

Many residents of south Deschutes County have significant needs for the basic necessities of food, shelter, clothing, health, education, and child development and care.

The goal of the Philanthropy Program is to provide these basic necessities in south Deschutes County, improving lives and strengthening community.

Annual grants are awarded to non-profit organizations that provide direct services for these basic needs at the Annual Giving Luncheon in the spring.

In 2017 the SRWC awarded 15 grants to organizations addressing these needs. The chart below shows the percentage of grants by each basic need.
