Service Projects:

Each year, Altrusa of Montrose organizes and participates in over a dozen service projects in our local community and in communities world-wide. Some of our long-term project are: 

  • Love Hug Bears - deliver approximately 700 stuffed bears each year to MMH emergency room & same day surgery unit to be given to children when they enter the hospital
  • 1st Grade Books - partner with Montrose Library District and Rotary to encourage reading and use of the library to all 1st Grade students in the Montrose School District by providing library cards, a field trip to the library, and free books for each child to keep permanently
  • Bosom Buddies Walk/Run –  provide registration & other support to this annual fundraising event assisting cancer victims
  • Annual Scholarships - awarded to area students


We hold two major fundraisers each year.

Our Spring Luncheon each March features creatively-decorated tables, a delicious meal, boutique shopping, a fashion show, door prizes, and several marvelous auction items and takes place at the Montrose Pavilion. Tickets always go quickly, so people are encouraged to reserve a spot early.

Our newest fundraiser is The Voice of the San Juans. Modeled after the extremely popular television program, The Voice, this competition brings the most talented vocalists in our Western Slope region together at a Blind Audition evening, followed several weeks later by the Final Competition, showcasing the 12 best singers.
