“Working Together for Causes that Matter” is more than just the slogan of Women Giving for Spartanburg – it is a reflection of the deep conviction that connects us all.
In 2007, a group of visionary women formed a collaborative venture with the Spartanburg County Foundation with the goal of enhancing our community’s quality of life through the power of collective giving. Through the years, Women Giving for Spartanburg has provided Grant funding to 100+ organizations totaling more than $3 million. Together, we can do so much!
This is our 15th anniversary year and we are making it a memorable one! During this year of celebration we aim to reach an ambitious goal of growing Women Giving to 250 Members, which will deepen our impact as we set our sights on what we can accomplish – together – in the next chapter for Women Giving! This power of collective giving, guided by the input of each Member, holds tremendous promise for moving Spartanburg forward.
Women Giving is forward funded, which means the dues we collect during 2022 determine the Grant award amounts for the Spring 2023 awards cycle. Thank you to those who have already renewed your membership during 2022! If you haven’t yet renewed or if you are interested in joining, this is the perfect moment.
Throughout this year we will host several social and educational events. Our Fall Social will be Tuesday, October 4th at 5:30 PM at the home of Julie Lowry. Please join us - current, past, and prospective Members alike – for conversation, reconnecting, and enjoying fellowship among a group of wonderful women RSVP now on our website!
Get ready for a landmark program year as we celebrate 15 years of women making a collective difference in Spartanburg. Let’s seize this opportunity to propel Women Giving forward as we honor this milestone anniversary!
All the best,
Weslie Higdon, Board Chair
Katie Friday, Membership Chair
