Women United in Philanthropy

Tracy Meade, a member of the Blue Ridge Mountain chapter, will share information about Women United in Philanthropy, a local organization what works under the umbrella of the United Way – Jefferson area. The mission of the organization is to engage with like-minded women, learn about philanthropy, and leverage collective giving to benefit local women and children. They do this through membership, and the more each member gives, the more the group gives to selected charities that focus on supporting women and children. Tracy is a member of the membership committee. To date, they have awarded nearly $500,000 in grants to local non-profit organizations. The organization’s grant committee identifies potential grant recipients, and members vote to identify which organizations will receive a grant. Their annual lunch on September 11 at the Boar’s Head Inn will reveal the winners of two $30,000 awards for 2018 – and Tracy will share this information at our meeting.
