Emergency Relief Fund
The Emergency Relief Fund was set up to grant aid for the relief of acute suffering caused by disasters. Soroptimist members, clubs, national associations, regions and networks are invited to contribute to the fund and they may also request that aid be given for specified emergencies.
Grants would normally be administered by Soroptimists if there is a club in the immediate area, or by partner organisations such as UNICEF or the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
In May 2020, the Fund dispersed an amount of £1,000 to the WHO Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund. There were no other requests for aid from the Fund during 2020/21.
To donate to this Fund, either complete the donation form in the left hand side panel of this webpage, or send a cheque, made payable to SIGBI Limited, to SIGBI Ltd, 2nd Floor, Beckwith House, 1 Wellington Road North, Stockport, SK4 1AF. Include a note to say that it is for the Emergency Relief Fund.
