SIAPR Biennium Thrust Club Grant
for Women and Girls
Governor Gabrielle “Billie” V. Calizo-Quimpo initiated an SIAPR Biennial Thrust Club Grant. This is to extend financial assistance to Clubs through a Region Club Grant Program funded from the Sampaguita Society for projects that will accelerate the achievement of the Region’s Biennium Thrust.
The Region Grant is intended specifically to fund projects aligned with the Biennium Thrust of an incumbent Governor of SIAPR. This Grant will not be a duplication of the various SIA funded Club Grants which supports particularly the SIA Dream Programs (Live Your Dream and Dream It, Be It).
