Women's Fund Board and Spark Donors Meeting
The Women's Fund Board and Spark Donors met April 23, 2015 for a working dinner to generate feedback
about how the Women's fund gives out and solicits its funds.
The feedback is being summarized by recorders at each table (Barb Massoglia, Marcia Tepp, Lynn Holborn,
Kris Firminhac, Barbara Ringberg, Katie Young) so that the information can be used by the Board.
Hosted by Ann Shannon, Karin McDonald, Jeanne Herder, Michele Wojciehoski, Rhonda La Chappell,
Mary Berard, the event was at Patty Noel's home.
Meetings at six tables were facilitated by Kathy Trachte, Tina Peters, Marg Coker-Nelson, Sharon Peterson,
Kathy Davies, and Katy Olson. Thanks to all who organized and participated in this important event.
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!
