Accomplishments as of January 2017

Now in its tenth year of operation, the Women’s Fund is successful due to the collaborative effort of over 300 women - donors, volunteers, community and business leaders – all helping women become financially independent.

  • Over 250 women have pledged at least $500 to support women in our community; and more than 100 additional women have provided financial, volunteer and in-kind support services.

  • The Fund has awarded over $425,000 in scholarships, mentorship programs, emergency funds and grants:

  • The Women’s Fund is the single largest scholarship donor at SCCC.

  • In spring 2013, the Fund launched its Mentorship Program and facilitated workshops at SCCC and HVCC, helping women recognize the power of their own dreams. So far, there have been seven mentoring events.
