Social Service Funding Committee

About Social Service Funding Committee

The Social Service Funding Committee reviews social service grant applications and provide funding recommendations to the Mayor and City Council on an annual basis. Board members have the opportunity to learn about the nonprofit and social service agencies operating in Beaverton and the important services and programs they provide to low-income Beaverton residents.

SSFC board members make a difficult decision between many worthy causes, dedicating over $300,000 of funding to nonprofit organizations each year. The board is composed of seven regular members and a student representative.
