Brunswick Community College Foundation kicked off its first Women in Philanthropy and Leadership meeting on Thursday, March 4, at Farmstead Golf Club.
Dr. Debbie Conner of Coastal Carolina University was the featured guest speaker. Conner shared her vision and passion for this mission to more than 30 women in attendance.
Women in Philanthropy is an organization dedicated to revolutionizing the way women give by transforming charitable contributions into philanthropic investments in the community.
The investments of Women in Philanthropy create positive, measurable, long-term change in the lives of women and children by focusing on root causes and pooling resources to increase our impact.
In addition to community philanthropy, the group stimulates positive change in community leadership by increasing women’s involvement in the community, women’s community networks and personal development of all women involved. It promotes the idea that every woman can and must be a philanthropist if the challenges facing women and children are going to be addressed.
The group brings to the community’s table: a philanthropic commitment to long-term solutions-through leadership, fundraising, advocacy and mentoring.
Membership is open to all who support the purpose, mission and goals of the organization through annual financial commitment and service initiatives.
