Local Community Grants

Funding Dreams

 

Soroptimist International of Saratoga County (SISC) grants funding for organizations that support the needs of women and girls in Saratoga County. These awards, given by the club each year, should provide women and girls with access to the education, training and support they may need to improve the quality of their lives. In order to qualify, candidate organizations must reside in or serve the needs of citizens of Saratoga County. Grants are typically awarded for programming, start-up, or capital projects. Consideration is be given to the number of people served. Individual endeavors such as pageants and competitions cannot be funded. Applications are traditionally available in January and funding results are typically announced in April each year.

In addition, we also support Wellspring with Project Hope and Power program, a financial literacy program which has been shown to be successful in empowering women and increasing their ability to reach their goals. Our $5,000 grant provided to Wellspring enables them to continue to their important work in the improvement of the lives of so many women and girls in our community.
