Rancho Santa Fe Women’s Fund members to hear grant proposals

On Wednesday, April 25, members of the Rancho Santa Fe Women’s Fund, a donor-advised fund of the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation, will gather at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. to hear Grant Proposal presentations from 10 nonprofit organizations selected by the Grants Committee to be placed on the 2012 ballot.

Donna Vance, Grant Committee chair, will emcee the presentations.

Last fall, the RSFWF Grants Committee began reviewing program considerations from nearly 100 San Diego County non-profit organizations. The committee focused on grant requests in the areas of arts and culture, and education and research.

Members of the RSF Women’s Fund will receive their 2012 ballots at this meeting and begin the annual awards voting process. In early May, after months of intense review by the Grants Committee, the final recipients of the 2012 awards will be determined by this general vote of the entire RSF Women’s Fund membership.

The Rancho Santa Fe Women’s Fund, now comprised of more than 135 members, began in November 2004 as a means for local women to join one another in meaningful, engaging ways while supporting the unmet needs of North San Diego County. Through their well-developed and comprehensive grant making model, the power of the Women’s Fund members giving together has had a significant impact on the greater good throughout the community.

Since its inception in 2004 and through informed, focused, and collective grant-making, the Rancho Santa Fe Women’s Fund, has given more than $1.6 million to regional non-profit agencies and expects to reach the $2 million benchmark by 2013.
