Women in Philanthropy begin new year

          Women in Philanthropy, the Giving Circle Fund of Eastern Carolina Community Foundation, kicked off a new year at its advisory board meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 10. This year’s new board members include Stephanie Isgett, Miko Pickett, and Kaley Elmore.

           Board members are selected by their expertise and commitment to the communities served by Eastern Carolina Community Foundation and Women in Philanthropy: Chesterfield, Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Marion, Marlboro, and Williamsburg counties.

           “The WIP board focused on expanding membership into all the counties served by Women in Philanthropy in 2022 and will continue this goal for 2023,” said WIP President Tiffany Straus.

            “We had a record number of 126 women join last year and were able to award $62,000 in grants to 15 area non-profit organizations. We will also be focusing on meaningful member engagement for those who would like to be more involved in our work. If you are a woman living or working in one of our counties, we encourage you to join us. Your membership contribution will positively impact your community.”

      Women in Philanthropy’s philosophy is that women informed about philanthropy and community needs can collectively make a difference in improving the quality of life and bring about change in the Pee Dee Region by combining financial and intellectual resources to award annual grants to local nonprofits.

            Since its 2009 inception, the WIP fund has contributed over $560,000 to nonprofits in the counties served by Eastern Carolina Community Foundation.
