Where is your money going?

The Soroptimist Club of Gold Beach, as part of a worldwide non-profit women’s service organization, is composed of volunteers who work to improve the lives of women and girls. Through programs such as Live Your Dream and Dream It Be It the club works to help promote the social and economic empowerment of women and girls in our community and worldwide.

Project monies and donations are used for signature programs, community service and programs, scholarships and awards. In the last club year of 2015-1016 the club raised close to $12,000.

Curry Arts, Inc. is a non-profit organization that promotes art and crafts within the community. Monies raised are used to fund scholarships to Gold Beach High School graduates to further their education. Term scholarships are also awarded to current high school students to take art classes at Southwestern Oregon Community College. Over the past five years, Curry Arts has given more than $25,000 to our local elementary school’s art program and the Gold Beach High School’s art and music programs. The organization was founded in 1973 and incorporated in 1978. All of Curry Arts’ Brew & Art Festival proceeds go directly into the art and music classrooms of Gold Beach. These donations are made to a “290 Fund” that is managed by the classroom teacher and used to purchase art supplies and musical instruments. The donations cannot be used to replace school funding that is diverted for other purposes.
