Matching Gift Challenge to bring The Women’s Fund to $1 Million
Beginning now, every dollar given to The Women’s Fund at The Community Foundation will be matched – dollar for dollar – by an anonymous donor. The objective is to grow The Women’s Fund endowment to $1 million by the 2015 Power of the Purse® luncheon, taking place May 19. Proceeds from the Fund are added to the Women for Women giving circle grant pool.
“I believe in the work of the Women for Women giving circle, making grants exclusively to support the needs of Western North Carolina’s women and girls,” said the donor. “Not everyone can afford to be a giving circle member, so I want to open the door to anyone who wants to be part of this effort. I’ll double every gift, and every dollar will support women and girls this year and every year after.”
“It’s truly exciting when a Foundation goal aligns with a donor’s passion,” said CFWNC President Elizabeth Brazas. “We are grateful and excited to partner with this donor who understands the power of endowment and who wants to encourage others to support the good work being done by nonprofits on behalf of our region’s women and girls.”
Every gift to The Women’s Fund will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $38,000 in matching funds. Your gift, no matter what size, is doubled, and lasts forever for Western North Carolina’s women and girls. Donate now.
