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.

Throughout the past 17 years the Women in Philanthropy were actively growing an endowment fund that was created to support the needs and interests of women throughout Madison County through grantmaking. With the initial goal of $100,000, through the Women in Philanthropy's "Century Club" and Annual Luncheon, the goal was met within 10 years! 

In 2023, we are beginning a new chapter of Women in Philanthropy. We are phasing out our "Century Club" model as we trust that donors who are able to give above-and-beyond the traditional Century Club mark will do so.Our target audience is still the same- women in Madison County who care about improving the quality of life for women and children in our community, and who are able to join us financially in that cause. We are confident with support from our generous donors we can increase our impact on women and children throughout Madison County.
