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 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 given to the number of people served. Individual endeavors such as pageants and competitions cannot be funded.
 
 
In 2021, SISC awarded $29,680 in grants to organizations for projects that realize SISC's mission to assist women and girls.  For details about these organizations and how they will use their grants, click here.
 
In addition, we also support Wellspring with Project Hope and Power, 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 enables them to continue to their important work in the improvement of the lives of so many women and girls in our community.
 
Information about the 2022 grant funding program  and applications will be posted here by November 2021.   For more information about the fund distribution program, contact Soroptimist International of Saratoga County at: funddistributionsaratoga@gmail.com.
