Janet Pfeiler Soroptimist Club Grant 2016:

Deadline is May 1, 2016
Funds provided by Soroptimist International Northeastern Region
In Honor of Past Governor, Janet Pfeiler, for her lifelong commitment to helping women

Applications are available in both Word and PDF formats. Please note that the application will open in a new window.

This grant will be given to start up or continue a club project that benefits women and girls. Total budget for club grants is $1,000-$2,000 dependent on available funds. P
roposal should request a specific amount starting at $500 (in $100 increments) and the budget tailored accordingly not to exceed $1,000. The number of grants given will be based on requested amounts and what projects the judges select as finalists. It is estimated that 2-4 clubs may be recipients of grants in the amount of $500-$1,000 based on funds budgeted for the club year. A club’s “Dream It, Be It” program would likely qualify.

Live Your Dream Awards:

The Soroptimist Live Your Dream Awards (formerly the Women’s Opportunity Awards) assists women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families, the opportunity to achieve their career goals by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects.
In addition to providing the primary financial support for their families, eligible applicants must be enrolled in, or have been accepted to, a vocational/skills training program or an undergraduate degree program and must demonstrate financial need.

The program begins at the local Soroptimist club level where the amount of the award is determined by each individual club. Each club winner is then forwarded for judging on the Region level where one winner is chosen to receive a first place award of $5,000, which is funded by Soroptimist International of the Americas (SIA). The first place region winner is then sent to SIA to compete for one of three $10,000 finalist awards.

Soroptimist Grants:
Each year, Soroptimist International of the Americas awards in excess of $150,000 in club grants to more than 30 Soroptimist clubs that are initiating or continuing innovative projects that benefit women and girls.
