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.

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.
The COVID-19 Nonprofit Fund
On March 29, 2020, the SRWC set up an COVID-19 Nonprofit Fund, soliciting donations to support nonprofits struggling to continue to provide much needed services to those impacted by the virus, isolation, job loss, etc. during this difficult time.
The SRWC COVID-19 Fund has disbursed $43,000 from April 2020 through May 2021.
