“Women in WIF speak their minds and encourage others to do the same thing. It’s a ‘yes-and’ organization where people build on one another’s ideas, saying: yes, that’s true, and this also.”

“My husband and I moved to Charlotte in 2010. After arriving, I had the opportunity to meet some great women who are making a difference in Charlotte because of their volunteer efforts. Since joining the Women’s Impact Fund I have had the chance to make new friends and to be involved in the organization where I know my background and experience can help the organization. If you’re new to Charlotte and want to get involved, this is a great way to get engaged.”

“It is 2003 and my boss’ wife is having this party to introduce something called the Women’s Impact Fund. I thought it would be “wise” to go. I learned about this great group of women who were joining together to form a women’s philanthropy group that would educate us about the needs of Charlotte and teach us to be more informed givers. Well, ten years later and it has been everything that it was billed to be and more. I now have 400+ Women’s Impact Fund friends and am far better educated as to the needs of our community.”
