Communique: "Women's Impact Network" More Than Doubles Funds In 5 Years
Women's Impact Network (WIN) is collective of women who pool their money to make a big impact on non-profits in the Cape Fear region. The group is in its sixth year; the first year, WIN pooled $20,000 to distribute. Impressive, right? Well, this year, as membership has increased, so has the impact power: $58,000 will be distributed this year, the lion's share going to one organization. WIN wants to continue to expand and provide even more support to local non-profits. Listen above to the chair of the Leadership Committee, Linda Brown, and the chair of the Membership Committee, Carol Kennedy.
I think this year is the year of women. Women helping women. Women helping their communities. It's very empowering to be a member of WIN. -Carol Kennedy
WIN has 4 areas of focus for its grant-giving: Education; Health and Wellness; the Environment; and, this year's focus: Arts and Culture. This year, one lucky non-profit organization will receive $50,500, and up to three additional organizations will receive smaller grants.
