Special Thank You to Women in Philanthropy supporting hunger and poverty
Women in Philanthropy
Bluffton Self Help is proud to receive a grant from Women in Philanthropy to support the financial assistance program for elderly and handicapped facing costs associated with extreme weather conditions. This grant will make funds available in October 2016 for this purpose.
Women in Philanthropy is a dedicated group of local women who are making a difference in the Lowcountry through the power of collective giving. Since their founding in 2003, they have built an endowment of over $1 million and, since 2006, they have awarded $299,000 in grants to nonprofit organizations throughout Beaufort County. In 2016 they awarded grants totaling $83,000 in support of “Providing Safe Shelter for our Citizens: Crisis, Temporary and Permanent.”
Women in America are changing the face of philanthropy. With more money and increased control and influence over how it is spent, more women than ever are making philanthropic investments to help address and solve the problems of our time.
