Sedalia Business Women accepts donations from members and the public to support women in our community. Currently, our club has annual fundraisers to support our projects with additional funding from endowments, contributions by members, and public donations.
If you have a specific project you prefer your donation to further, please be sure to designate that project on the instructions at the time you make your donation. Your donations are not tax deductible, but will be used for one or more of the worthy causes listed below.
Scholarships: Each year Sedalia Business Women awards two to three scholarships based on financial need and available funds. Please visit our Scholarship page on our website to read about our past recipients.
Girls State: For several years, SBW has sponsored a young woman to Girls State. Girls attending the Legion’s program spend a week of study working together as self-governing citizens. “American Legion Auxiliary Girls State is a non-partisan program that teaches young women responsible citizenship and love for God and Country. Since the inception of the Girls State program in 1937, nearly one million young people have had the opportunity to learn first-hand how their state and local government works.” (www.boysandgirlsstate.org )
Holiday Basket: SBW assembles a holiday basket and adopts a family for the holidays.
Donations to Other Charities: SBW uses proceeds from the Annual Chicken Dinner to support local charities.
