Celebrating Women to Women Greensboro


Bloom Together: A Recap of Women to Women’s 2024 Luncheon


On March 14th, Women to Women (W2W) hosted its 14th annual Women to Women Luncheon at the Koury Convention Center. 730 amazing women (and a few good men) from across greater Greensboro gathered to raise funds, announce nonprofit grants, and celebrate women sowing the seeds of success in our community.

This year’s luncheon theme, Bloom Together, recognized that each of us has a role to play in nurturing the wellbeing of women and girls in our community—donors, nonprofits, and the women and families they partner with and serve. W2W announced their 2023-24 grantees and highlighted these nonprofits’ impactful projects and initiatives. These grants and the nonprofits they support serve are empowering women and girls across our community to pursue their dreams and make a positive difference.

Grants were awarded to the following organizations in 2023:

  • Diaper Bank of North Carolina – $50,000
  • Community Housing Solutions – $30,000
  • Backpack Beginnings – $25,000 (3rd of 4 installments)
  • YWCA – $20,000
  • UNCG Center for New North Carolinians – $20,000
  • Guilford Backpack Ministry – $15,000
  • Guilford Adult Health; Guilford Community Care Network – $13,000

W2W presented the Kay Hagan Scholarship to a deserving student of outstanding academic achievement, Adhika Karthick. Adhika was recognized for her academic excellence and leadership potential. This scholarship represents the legacy of the late Senator Kay Hagan and her passion and support for education in the state of North Carolina. Women to Women is proud to continue her work by investing in the education and future success of young women in our community.

The luncheon’s keynote speaker, Liz Murray, inspired attendees with her remarkable journey from homelessness to Harvard. Ms. Murray shared her experiences overcoming adversity and finding resilience in the face of unimaginable challenges. Her message of hope and empowerment reminded us of the transformative power of education, perseverance, and the human spirit.

As a parting gift, each attendee also received a copy of the W2W-produced report, Investing in Change: A 2024 Review of Women and Children in Guilford County. The report shares data on four areas having the greatest impact on Guilford County women’s poverty—healthcare, hunger, housing and transportation, and education and workforce.
