Funds are given to programs that address an existing or emerging community need including health, nutrition and/or assistance to victims of violence, neglect or poverty.

Women in Philanthropy is a giving circle founded in 2009  that  provides an opportunity for a group of caring and focused women to collectively learn about philanthropic issues and address needs in the following Pee Dee counties:  Chesterfield, Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Marion, Marlboro, and Williamsburg.  Membership is open to any woman who is interested in improving the quality of life for all citizens in the Pee Dee. Each member makes a financial contribution to the giving circle and votes to decide which organizations are selected to receive grants.
