The Women’s Fund is a volunteer-driven organization operating as a Fund and a Program of The Community Foundation of The North State. This structure allows us to determine the best way to respond to our community’s most pressing needs in areas that interest us without taking on the expense of creating and managing a traditional nonprofit.
The Community Foundation of The North State provides the Women’s Fund:
- A financial “umbrella” for administrative and financial support.
- Services such as legal, insurance, grantmaking expertise, a tax exempt 501(c)(3) status, and many more.
- Oversight in managing our Women’s Fund Endowment.
The Women’s Fund is managed by Cabinet Members consisting of volunteers who chair subcommittees that oversee all aspects of the organization. The Cabinet develops, implements and manages all policies and strategies for the Women’s Fund. And importantly, it emphasizes succession planning to encourage the early identification of new and emerging leaders and ensuring seasoned leaders overlap with new ones for smooth transitions each year.
The Cabinet is led by an overall chair and includes the heads of the following subcommittees. Read more about our current leadership.
