Holiday Community Project Grant


It is a tradition of the SMWN to sponsor a special community project during the holiday season.  We invite local non-profit organizations to apply for our $500 Community Project Grant given each December. Worthy projects that promote the spirit and joy of the giving season will be considered. The funds may be used to provide gifts for deserving groups of children, teens or adults, or help underwrite a holiday party, dinner, or other special projects with a holiday emphasis.

We request a representative of the awarded organization be our guest at the SMWN “Holiday Extravaganza” luncheon meeting, Wednesday, December 6, at the Santa Maria Country Club to make a short presentation about the organization and the holiday project funded by this grant.
