how we give
About the SRWC Philanthropy Programs
The Sunriver Women’s Club views its philanthropy program as an investment toward the betterment of our community. We strive to have a grant program that develops a strong network of services in south Deschutes County that will improve the lives of the most vulnerable citizens in our community.
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. Since 1999, the SRWC has awarded over $771,000 in grants to organizations that support essential services for women, children, families and seniors, and educational opportunities for at-risk children and teens in south Deschutes County.
