Local nonprofits got a boost in funding for their projects after the most recent San Juan Island Community Foundation grant cycle. The Women’s Fund, a donor advised fund of the Foundation, awarded $6,000 to support the following 4 community programs:
• The San Juan EMT Association “Every 15 Minutes” program
• The Salish Sea Sciences 2018 Summer program
• The San Juan Islands Agricultural Guild San Juan County Food Hub/Producer Engagement project
• The San Juan Islands Museum of Art Database and Technology Renovation
Founded in 2003, the Women’s Fund is a group of 126 (and growing) San Juan Island women committed to educating and expanding the pool of women engaged in philanthropy, making a significant impact in the community, and increasing awareness of important issues facing San Juan Island nonprofit organizations.
As the Women’s Fund enters its 15th year, it has granted nearly $200,000 to local nonprofits.
Anyone can join in: new members are welcome to join the Women’s Fund at any time during the year. For more information or to join today, please visit sjiwomensfund.org or contact Amy Saxe-Eyler, the Women’s Fund Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
