Women in Philanthropy Grant Cycle Begins
Applications for Women in Philanthropy’s eighth annual grant cycle are now available. The deadline to apply is August 31 and grants will be awarded on December 1. Applications can be downloaded here.
Grants from Women in Philanthropy are awarded to nonprofit 501(c) 3 groups in the Pee Dee region with operating budgets less than $750,000, that support the needs of the underprivileged in the community. 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. Since its inception in 2009, WIP has awarded more than a quarter of a million dollars in grants to local charities in the following Pee Dee counties: Chesterfield, Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Marion, Marlboro, and Williamsburg.
Women in Philanthropy is a giving circle that provides an opportunity for a group of caring and focused women to collectively learn about philanthropic issues and address needs in the Pee Dee. 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.
