2020 - 2021 Grant Application
The grants, charities and scholarships committee works to know and understand
where the monies we raise as a club could best satisfy our club's goals as reflected in
our mission statement. Our committee focuses on understanding our communities
and the challenges they experience so that we can recommend ways Beaufort Woman's Club can support them. We research area nonprofits that match our goals and review applications for completeness. Our recommendations are forwarded to the executive board for next step approval and finally to the general membership for final approval.
All organizations receiving monies from Beaufort Woman’s Club must submit a grant application to receive funding.
DECISIONS – Grants will be awarded on a case by case basis. Beaufort Woman’s Club reserves the right to deny applications.
