Dues range on a sliding scale from $10 to $50, and almost 100% of dues go to our scholarship fund that goes to an Oregonian Smithie every year. We aim to have our events free or very close to it to make it easier for local alums to join us and to keep club costs down so more money goes to our scholarship fund, the Anna Paret Davis Fund.
The Smith Club of Oregon voted in 1951 to establish an endowed scholarship for the state of Oregon. In 1964, Sylvia Gates and other members changed the name of the fund to “Anna Paret Davis -Smith College of Oregon Scholarship Fund”, to honor Mrs. Davis. She was the oldest Smith Alumna in Oregon at this date - June 15, 1964. She was also the mother of Oregon Smith Club member Margery Davis Boyden, class of 1933.
The recipient of the scholarship is chosen by the Smith Office of Student Financial Services, based on the need for financial assistance. They work with the student to assemble the informational packet that the Club receives each year.
