Women in Philanthropy

WIP_check_Nov15-01-webCombining our Resources

As women, we understand that by working together we can make a difference in our community. Women in Philanthropy is a shining example of the philosophy of combined giving. By coming together as a group to pool our financial and creative resources, we can make a larger impact in the Catawba Valley on crucial healthcare needs at Catawba Valley Medical Center. Focusing solely on the needs of CVMC also allows us to have a greater impact by narrowing the choices for us. We can add our annual donation of $500 into one larger pool and focus on purchasing healthcare items that are needed but not always covered by regular budgets.

How it Works

Business
Two business luncheons annually, one Spring meeting to hear reporst on grants previously awarded and one Fall meeting to hear grant requests from CVMC personnel.
Social
Generally two events a year, ranging from wine-tastings, art crawls, spa evenings and other fun happenings.

Why it Works

While the power of one is important, the power of many can help change lives. Ensuring quality healthcare for our entire community is an important goal, and together we can make things happen. Combining our $500 annual donations gives us greater spending power. Together, we can do more for CVMC than we can do on our own. Together, we can make a real and lasting impact. Join with other women who believe in philanthropy. You are needed!
