Fall 2020
Although summer is a time of rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation the Women’s Endowment Fund has been working passionately in planning for our new year. As we head into the beauty of the fall season and prepare ourselves for the cold winter months ahead, remember to let the warmth of your heart impact all in our community.
Save the date for WEF's "For Women, Forever" annual dinner on March 10, 2021. This year's keynote speaker is Ramona Hood, president and CEO of FedEx Custom Critical. During the event, the Women's Endowment Fund will also honor Jacqueline Silas-Butler, Esq., executive director of Project GRAD, with the 2021 Judith A. Read Tribute Award for Service & Advocacy for Women. This event has sold out the last five years, so reserve your seats now by becoming an event sponsor. 
The Women’s Endowment Fund is now accepting grant proposals for programs that enrich the lives of local women and girls in the areas of economic empowerment, safety from violence, and health and wellness. Qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations should apply for a grant online within the new application deadline of Oct. 1 - Nov. 1, 2020. 
In August, the Women's Endowment Fund celebrated local Black female artists during its annual Circle of Empowerment donor event, Strong Women: Black Female Artists Redefining Our World. The virtual event showcased the work of local artists: Alexis Britford, dancer, GroundWorks Dance Theater; April Couch, visual artist; Sharetta Howze, spoken word artist; Tracey Aquart-Nguma, vocal artist, Umojah Nation; and YEPAW, education group preforming artists.
Thank you to the generous donors who contributed to the Women's Endowment Fund from March. 1 - Sept. 30, 2020. Your gifts will uplift and empower women and girls in our community for many years to come.
