A Letter from the President

Summit League is a women’s philanthropic organization comprising 50 active members. They are community-minded, influential, and well-connected women in Santa Clara County. Working together on fundraising projects, these women make lasting friendships that carry on past their active membership years and continue long into their sustaining membership years. There are over 60 Sustaining Members of Summit League.

Over the 60 years since Summit League was established, it has built a fine legacy of raising money for Santa Clara County non-profit organizations. Every two years, Summit League vets dozens of philanthropic organizations and projects to choose the next recipient of its fundraising efforts. The impressive list of organizations Summit League has supported appears on this website. Summit League is proud of the financial boost it gave to help launch these fine organizations and to raising community-awareness to help sustain them.

The next organization Summit League will add to the list is Respite and Research for Alzheimer’s Disease. Fundraising is already underway and the campaign will culminate in an elegant event May 30, 2019, A Day in the Garden to Remember. The event will feature a speaker, a marketplace, and delicious food on the gorgeous grounds of a beautiful Los Gatos home.

With thanks to our generous sponsors, our elite Marketplace vendors, and with pride in Summit League,

Bette Cruikshank,   President 2017-18
