ENHANCING FUTURES FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN

 

Women Make A Difference. Wherever we live, we strengthen the fabric of our community through participation and leadership. The Women’s Fund of Randolph County, a component fund of the Community Foundation of Randolph County, was established by women to enhance the futures of women and children throughout Randolph County. Started in 2011 by the late Rev. Cherie Isakson, the fund was designed so that 50% of contributions will be given away in grants to nonprofit organizations for projects that empower women and/or children. 40% of contributions will be retained to grow the fund, and 10% will be used for program and membership expansion. Since its inception, the Women’s Fund of Randolph County has granted nearly $30,000 and is endowed with a balance over $40,000.

Everyone who makes a minimum contribution of $50 is considered a member of the Women’s Fund of Randolph County. Every year, through our wonderful members and generous donors, grants are distributed at a brunch event, which also features silent and live auctions. All proceeds from the event go back into the Women’s Fund.

By becoming a member, you are making a huge difference in our community; you are helping provide grants to local nonprofits.

All gifts made payable to the Community Foundation of Randolph County with “Women’s Fund” on the memo line are tax-deductible. If you are interested in joining the Steering Committee, please contact the Community Foundation.
