-The SILG Community Grants Committee has two openings for club members. Members serve a 3 year term, but only meet 3x/year. The focus of the committee is first: collecting grant applications /allocating annual funds from Festival to successful applicants, and second: coordinating annual Recipient Luncheon to hand out the funds. It’s a great way for newer club members to really learn why we do what we do as Soroptimists, and understand the far-reaching effects of our collective contribution. Contact Jacque if interested in this great opportunity!
