Soroptimists have grants to give

Applications are now available for local non-profit and charitable organizations to apply to Soroptimist International of Cameron Park and El Dorado Hills for a 2011 financial grant. This annual program, SICP/EDH’s major community service project, offers direct support for specific projects.

Applications are available from Raelene Herzig at PO Box 1193, Shingle Springs 95682 or e-mail r.herzig@att.net. The deadline for completed applications to be received by SICP is May 15.

Soroptimist International of Cameron Park and El Dorado Hills has recently provided financial support though the grant program to many community projects such as Partners In Care’s office equipment, Lilliput Children’s Services post adoption program, Boys and Girls Club, Camerado Springs Middle School’s Rachel’s Challenge Program, Food Bank of El Dorado County, New Morning, Placerville Union School District’s Homeless Education Program and CASA El Dorado.

The organization also contributes to various local individuals and organizations on a regular basis. Some examples are scholarship funds for college-bound students, support for the Center for Violence-Free Relationships and the Women’s Opportunity Award, a monetary award given by Soroptimist to women who have returned to school and are the family’s primary wage-earner.

Soroptimist International is a worldwide volunteer organization for business and professional women with 100,000 members in over 100 countries. The Cameron Park/El Dorado Hills club meets Wednesday mornings in Cameron Park and welcomes women who are interested in learning more about Soroptimism.
