Women in Philanthropy
Women in Philanthropy, is a giving circle based on the theory that women informed about philanthropy and about needs in their community can collectively make a difference. These women are dedicated to improving the quality of life in the Pee Dee by combining their financial and intellectual resources to award annual grants to nonprofit organizations. Members connect to each other, and to the community and bring about change through the power of small grants.
Women in Philanthropy was founded in 2009. Each member is a link in an ever-growing chain that enables Women in Philanthropy to do collectively what no one member might achieve individually. Membership gifts are pooled to create a larger fund that awards grants. Every member has a voice and a vote in where the funds go.
