Our mission is to improve the lives of women and girls through women’s collective giving.
Our vision is to empower women to take action, inspire hope and possibility and strengthen Western North Carolina.
Here’s How Women for Women works:
- Members commit to a tax-deductible gift of $1,100 per year for three years.
- Members learn about regional issues affecting women and girls and make high-impact grants that help disadvantaged women.
- Each member has a voice and a vote in how funds are distributed.
- The level of participation in group activities – such as reviewing grant proposals or making site visits – is totally flexible and set by each individual.
The expertise and guidance of key leaders and organizations is sought in Women for Women’s research, grantmaking and educational activities. As a result, each member becomes a more inspired and informed philanthropist.
Women for Women is open to new members. If you would like to be part of this powerful giving circle, download our membership brochure (PDF, 2.55MB) or a pledge card (PDF, 114KB) today.
As our membership grows, so does our capacity to help. Our current membership consists of over 250 women.
