Part of my job at the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation is working with the Women's Fund of Greater Green Bay. Before I started my job at the Community Foundation, I volunteered with the Women's Fund and quickly fell in love with the mission of raising and granting money to support programs for leadership and self-esteem initiatives for women and girls in the greater Green Bay area. On September 28th, we had the 7th annual Power of the Purse luncheon and raised over $114,000! This money is placed in an endowment fund and will grow for years. Each year, five percent of that endowment is granted out to programs.
Thanks to co-chairs Lorrie Blaylock and Marcia O'Leary for being such great co-chairs and leaders of a committee of 40+ women to make this a successful event. View some photos on the Women's Fund Facebook page.
