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.

Currently 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 $90,000. Through the Women in Philanthropy's "Century Club" and Annual Luncheon, the goal is rapidly approaching and we encourage you to be a part of this tremendous undertaking and actively engage with this great cause.

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.

2018 Century Club

As part of Women in Philanthropy's goal to build a sustainable endowment to support the needs of women in Madison County, the Century Club was formed to recognize individuals who make an annual gift of at least $100 to the Women's Fund at the Madison County Community Foundation. This endowment, with the initial goal of $100,000, has raised more than $90,000 in just three years!

If you are interested in joining the Century Club, you can make a gift online, by clicking 'Give Now' at the top right hand side of this page and selecting "Women in Philanthropy" or by mailing a check to the Foundation with 'Women in Philanthropy: Century Club" in the memo line. 

Thank you to all of our 2018 Century Club members for your faithful support of the Women's Fund.
