Power of 50 for Education Supports Local Students


Building on the success of the COVID-19 Nonprofit Emergency Fund, the Sunriver Women’s Club is sponsoring an exciting new initiative — The Power of 50 for Education. The goal is to continue our commitment to pandemic recovery by supporting the success of south Deschutes County students. The pandemic and virtual schooling created major challenges for many students — learning loss, lack of grade level achievement, missing targets required for graduation, social isolation and emotional issues to name just a few. Grade-level benchmarks and graduation rates were already below those of Bend schools.

The concern of the Sunriver Women’s Club is that the effects of the pandemic have exacerbated the disparity of success of the students in our community. To help us reach our goal of $50,000, please donate at Power-of-50-for-Education.
