FOR GRANT SEEKERS
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
Proposals that initiate a new program in south Deschutes County or enable organizations to expand services to south Deschutes County are of interest; projects seeking on-going support will be considered. Grant awards normally range between $500 and $5,000. Applications for our next grant cycle will open on January 8, 2021 and close on January 29, 2021. Applicants will be notified in April 2021 of grant decisions. Grant awards will be distributed in mid-May 2021.
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. An Interim Report is due on or before November 30, 2020 and is required prior to making an application for a grant in 2021. A Final Report is due on or before April 30, 2021 and is required prior to receipt of new grant funds for 2021-22. Please check back after August 30th for the link to the interim and final reports.
The Power of 100+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. An RFP will be posted in late 2020 for our 2021 Signature Project.
The COVID-19 Non-Profit Emergency Fund
The COVID-19 Nonprofit Emergency Fund is a short-term project of the SRWC to assist non-profits facing increased demand during this pandemic. There is not an application process - rather, members of the SRWC Philanthropy Committee are networking with local nonprofits 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
