The Women's Fund Exceeded our Spark the Legacy Campaign Goal!
The Women’s Fund dedicated its 15th birthday to trying to raise its endowment to $500,000, which was a big stretch at the time. With more money in the endowment, there would be more money to give out to needy women and children.
During 2012 and 2013 many Women’s Fund supporters seriously weighed their options to see if they could give or pledge (over 5 years) a minimum of $1500 before our 20th birthday in 2017. And over 70 women made that commitment! All together, the Spark donors and the many others with smaller gifts came up with almost $300,000. And now our endowment is over $600,000 and generates over $20,000 a year for our grant program. Give women a challenge and they come through!
