Women’s philanthropy: Steppin’ up to social change, together.

By Lisa Kays on October 26th, 2007

On Wednesday, the day our challenge grant closed more than $25K over our goal, I couldn’t help but notice the serendipity when I saw this headline across my reader: "Women step up in philanthropy."

Don’t they ever.

Leadership Luncheon ’07 raises $1 million! We did it!

By Marion Ballard on October 25th, 2007

Well, I just came out of a wrap-up meeting of the Development Committee about our fantastic Leadership Luncheon.  Who would have believed it was possible to raise a million dollars from a luncheon?

Last year we thought we were pretty great to raise $670,000.  A goal of $1 million for 2007? No way!

The Dalai Lama gets it.

By Jennifer Cortner on October 24th, 2007

At The Women’s Foundation, we have a phrase for men who support our mission.  We call them guys who get it.

We’re lucky to have many wonderful, supportive men in our camp here in our local area, including Leroy Pingho, Ralph Boyd, Jr. and Frederic L. Ballard, Jr.

Leadership Luncheon ’07: The Power of Giving Together is catching!

By Allison Mitchell on October 23rd, 2007

People everywhere are joining the powerful wave of philanthropy that is The Women’s Foundation.

Our community was challenged at the 2007 Leadership Luncheon to raise $50,000 by October 24th.  And when we do, every dollar will be matched three times.

For every one dollar invested, The Women’s Foundation will receive $3 more.

Leadership Luncheon ’07: A behind the scenes take on transformation.

By Lisa Kays on October 19th, 2007

Putting on a luncheon for 1,500 people isn’t easy.  As the event gets closer and closer, one finds oneself so mired in the millions of important details that you can’t remember anymore what you’re really working for.

You can’t see the forest, in other words, for the trees.  Or, the purpose for the nametags.

Leadership Luncheon ’07: Awesome is the only word that comes to mind.

By Wendy Pierce on October 18th, 2007

Thank you so much for letting me know about the two attendees at your Leadership Luncheon who handed off the HOBO bags they’d won to Laceiy and Sharan.  Of course, I am thrilled to learn that Laceiy and Sharan went home with Hobo bags.  They are two incredibly eloquent, graceful, and inspirational women—I feel proud to have been present to hear their stories and to celebrate their triumphs.

By Wendy M. Weaver on October 16th, 2007

Every year, I am inspired by the women at the Leadership Luncheon and this year was no exception!  What an amazing event!

This luncheon made me feel proud to be a woman.

By DeEra Dunbar on October 15th, 2007

Coming into the event I have to admit I was kind of intimidated, but I quickly realized we were all there to make a difference. The Women’s Foundation luncheon made me feel proud to be a woman. I also felt that women have a voice and if we come together we can change the world.
