Women in Philanthropy

Women in Philanthropy was started in 2005 to strengthen the philanthropic voice of women in Madison County. By encouraging the use of time, talents, and treasures, Women in Philanthropy is building a strong collaboration of women who are active in making their communities better and brighter.

In it's 17th year, the Women in Philanthropy are actively growing an endowment that will be used to support the needs and interests of women throughout Madison County. With the initial goal of $100,000 , they have just eclipsed $175,000. Through the Women in Philanthropy's "Century Club" and Annual Luncheon, the goal was met within 10 years! 

If you feel inspired to join the effort to build this important endowment, and support future grant making efforts, you can give online by clicking "GIVE" in the menu bar, and selecting "Women In Philanthropy" for your donation. If you prefer to give by mail, please send a check to the Madison County Community Foundation Office with "Women in Philanthropy" in the memo line.
