A Letter from Board Chair Deborah Majewski

September, 2017

I am humbled and thrilled with the opportunity to serve as the chair of the Women’s Impact Fund this year. Anyone who knows me knows that I am passionate about this organization! I am fortunate to have an amazing Board of Directors to work with in executing against our strategic goals. We held our Board Retreat at the end of August and agreed on our priorities for the year.  Here are a few things to be on the lookout for:

  • Our first Spark Initiative grant: In response to feedback from our members, grantees, and the community, we are piloting an additional grant that lets us be more flexible and collaborative in addressing critical needs in our community
  • An updated brand for Women’s Impact Fund: We will be introducing a new logo and website to reflect a more contemporary look and feel
  • A new educational opportunity, the Board Leadership Training Program: For those interested in joining the next generation of Board leaders in the Charlotte nonprofit community, this offering will educate and engage members on best practices and practical tips for smart, effective Board leadership
  • Improved processes and systems for our members, prospects, and sponsors resulting from upgraded technology

Additionally, we have many opportunities planned throughout the year to allow members to become or stay engaged. Thank you for being a member of the Women’s Impact Fund. I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event!
