A member’s thoughts about the grant process

Many of us talk about doing good, and some of us perhaps donate time and money to a cause or two. But it takes a certain kind of person (or people in this case) to actually have a vision of how an impact can be made and then take that vision through to a reality. You have made a positive and tangible difference not just to the NFPs involved, but also to the women who have joined you on the journey, and are learning the benefits of collective giving first-hand. Thank you!!
