A Letter from Women Giving for Spartanburg Chair: Marsha Moore
Welcome to the tenth year of Women Giving for Spartanburg! Nine years ago, we began with 161 members and awarded $200,000 in grants to 8 organizations. Women Giving has come a long way in the intervening years and has seen several milestones including more than $2M in grants, 72 grants awarded to 57 different non-profit organizations in Spartanburg County, and a membership high of 261 members in 2013.
Next year is the 10th Anniversary of Women Giving, and I would like to see more milestones such as record membership and bigger grants awarded to more organizations. We can make a bigger impact on the community where we live and improve the quality of life for everyone. To do this we need YOUR help! Recruit new members, encourage inactive members to join us again, get involved on a committee, or just let us know your ideas. We hope the new ‘dual’ payment method will make it easier for members to complete their dues by the end of December.
I am excited about next year and the things we can and will accomplish. Plans are being made now to make our 10th year extra special. Be a part of history and join me as we celebrate this anniversary year of Women Giving for Spartanburg!
