Apply now for a Soroptimist grant

Sia-logo-horizontalSoroptimist International of Davis is accepting applications from local nonprofit organizations for grant funding for 2020.

The club welcomes submissions from organizations that support economic empowerment and access to education for women and girls in our community. Applications will be assessed based on their alignment with the Soroptimist mission, community impact and feasibility. Any organization, including previous recipients, is encouraged to apply.

Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization that provides women and girls access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment. SI Davis’ major fundraiser is selling beer and wine at the Davis Farmers Market. Each year, it reinvests those profits in its programs and projects. These include Live Your Dream: Education and Training Awards for Women, and Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Students at King High School. It also funds high school scholarships, anti-trafficking efforts, and these community grants.

In 2020, the club has $6,500 budgeted for community grants of up to $2,500 each. Nonprofit organizations that align with the Soroptimist mission are encouraged to apply. The deadline is March 6. Awards will be handed out April 30 at the club’s Dream Awards Night. 

The online application is available at Questions may be directed to Donna Gulsvig, Community Grants chair, at
