You’re Invited, Ladies!

Every woman who believes that she, together with other women who care, can make a positive difference in the lives of women and children in our community is invited to the Community Foundation of White County’s 16th annual Women Giving Together Fund fundraising luncheon on June 7th at the Brandywine Convention Center.

This year’s luncheon will welcome President & CEO of Early Learning Indiana, Maureen Weber as its keynote speaker. Early Learning Indiana provides leadership, advocacy, and early childhood education services to continually improve the early learning landscape in Indiana. And with Maureen leading the organization, she is a fierce advocate in sharing their important message across the state.

Honored and celebrated at the luncheon will be the recipients of last year’s Women Giving Together Fund grants. A total of $17,650 was awarded to six different organizations whose dedication and efforts strengthen the women and families of our community, including support for the mobile outreach trailer at the Family Health Clinics, Pack Away Hunger, and so much more. Since its inception, CFWC has awarded over $165,000 in grants from the women’s fund to support education, health and human services, arts and culture, and historical preservation, to name just a few areas of opportunity answered by our generous donors.

CFWC’s Women Giving Together Fund has become a very meaningful “giving circle” in our White County community. Donations to benefit the WGT Fund are pooled together for maximum impact; thus, every woman’s donation to the Fund becomes part of a larger whole, capable of greater things. Half of each donation is endowed in a permanent fund which will continue to grow; earnings from the endowed portion of the fund will be available for charitable uses in the community far into the future. The other half of each donation is made available for grants the following year.

Anyone may donate to the Women Giving Together Fund. Every gift, of whatever amount meaningful to its donor, becomes part of this exciting foundation in our community. The combined gifts determine the amount available for grants each year. Last year, over 100 women donated a total of $18,418 to the Fund; just think of what could happen if 250 (or 500!) women pooled their passion and resources to benefit our community!

If you would like to donate to CFWC’s Women Giving Together Fund, please write your check to the Community Foundation of White County, noting WGT in the memo line. If you would like to attend our luncheon on June 7, please contact Lucy Dold at the Community Foundation, 574-583-6911. Lunch cost is $30.00 and reservations must be in by May 24th.
