Posted August 1, 2017 at 5:50 am by

The San Juan Island Wom­en’s Fund is a pooled donor-advised fund man­aged by the San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion. Togeth­er, the mem­bers are mak­ing a dif­fer­ence for local non­prof­its by award­ing grants to sup­port crit­i­cal projects that enrich our island community.

In late June, three pro­pos­als were select­ed for fund­ing by vote of the Women’s Fund 100+ mem­bers for a total of $8,000. The projects fund­ed includ­ed Fri­day Har­bor Ele­men­tary School’s Sum­mer Acad­e­my, the Wash­ing­ton Voca­tion­al Ser­vices 7th and 8th grade Dream Builders pro­gram and the Fri­day Har­bor Labs Sci­ence Out­reach program.

The San Juan Island Women’s Fund has grant­ed near­ly $200,000 to local non­prof­its since it was found­ed in 2002. Inter­est­ed in join­ing? Call 378‑1001 or vis­it their web­site at for more information.

The Women’s Fund is pleased to be fea­tured at the Com­mu­ni­ty Foundation’s Fair booth August 16 — 19th. Every dol­lar raised dur­ing the four days of the Fair will be matched 50% by the Foun­da­tion until the goal amount has been reached. Come say hel­lo at their booth in the main hall and help grow the Women’s Fund membership!
