Applications for Women in Philanthropy’s 10th annual grant cycle are now available. The deadline to apply will be July 2 at 5 p.m. Applications can be downloaded from, www.

Grants from Women in Philanthropy are awarded to nonprofit 501(c) 3 groups in the Pee Dee region with operating budgets under $750,000, which support the needs of the underprivileged in the community. Funds are given to programs that address an existing or emerging community need including health, nutrition and/or assistance to victims of violence, neglect or poverty.

Women in Philanthropy is a giving circle founded in 2009 that provides an opportunity for a group of caring and focused women to collectively learn about philanthropic issues and address needs in the following Pee Dee counties: Chesterfield, Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Marion, Marlboro, and Williamsburg. Membership is open to any woman who is interested in improving the quality of life for all citizens in the Pee Dee. Each member makes a financial contribution to the giving circle and votes to decide which organizations are selected to receive grants.
Women in Philanthropy has awarded $400,000 in its previous nine grant cycles and this year has set an ambitious goal to distribute $100,000 so that it can claim the distinction of giving away one-half million dollars in the first ten years of its existence.
