COMMUNITY MEMORIAL FUND GIVING PROGRAM

SCF established this Program to give anyone the opportunity to memorialize a loved one, a colleague, a client or a friend with a gift that will make a difference in our community. This is a celebration of lives well lived, and memories that gladden those who are still here.

 

Your tax-deductible memorial donation may be made in any amount, at any time. Every penny of your contribution will be pooled with all other gifts in the same calendar year and result in one or more grants to local nonprofits that assist our needy neighbors and help enrich the quality of life in our communities.

2014 Community Memorial Fund Grant

The 2014 grant in the amount of $950 was awarded to Soroptimist International of Central Solano County to support their "Girls Circle" program.  Conducted at the Matt Garcia PAL Center, the program serves girls ages 12-18 and is professionally facilitated and structured. Weekly discussions focus on many themes important to the lives and issues facing young girls in our community.  The goal of Girls Circle is to foster a sense of confidence and self-reliance among its participants.  Organized around topical modules lasting 8-10 weeks, girls are guided through activities that help them focus their attention on relationships, attitudes, goals, hopes and fears.
