  • reading to young children enrolled in the CANE Day Care Center.

We award grants to non-profit organizations whose work enhances South County Community life in at least one of our five focus areas: arts and culture, civic engagement and outreach, education and libraries, environment, and health and wellness.

Raise Funds

An annual Book & Author Luncheon is our major fundraiser where we bring together acclaimed and award-winning authors and book lovers. Other fundraisers have ranged from Zumba and Line-dancing to a little black dress event. These events raise funds for grants for nonprofit groups in South County and for scholarships for women in need.

Inspire Youth

Our annual "Spirit of Giving" essay contest helps middle-school students learn the joys and benefits of charitable giving.

Advance Women

We provide scholarships to local women who are seeking to become self-sufficient through the pursuit of a degree or by obtaining credentials to practice a vocation.
