About the SRWC Philanthropy Programs

Philanthropy – the practice of giving money and/or time to help make life better for other people.

Merriam Webster Dictionary

The SRWC philanthropy program awards grants to local nonprofit agencies with the goal of providing a strong network of services that will improve the lives of the most vulnerable citizens in our south Deschutes County community.  Since 1999, the SRWC philanthropy program has awarded over $771,000 to programs providing services to women, children, families and seniors in our south Deschutes County community.

The Sunriver Women’s Club is proud of its philanthropy program and grateful for all of our members who contribute time and/or money to ensure its success.  If you would like to find out more about volunteering with our fundraising events, volunteering with one of our nonprofit partners or donating to one of the philanthropic programs listed below, please follow the links.  Volunteer opportunities or Donate.

The SRWC Power of 100+ Program
The Sunriver Women’s Club Power of 100 program was initiated in September 2018 as a way for club members and members of the community to make a larger contribution to a specific need in the community.  In its first year, the SRWC’s Power of 100 Program funded two projects at $10,000 each.  We are currently in the fact-finding and assessment stage with schools and other partners to gather information about a new signature project focused on educational needs of local students.
