Women to Women


Nobody understands the challenges women face better than women themselves.

What You Can Do:

We invite you to participate in effective philanthropy: philanthropy that is inspired by a commitment to create positive change for women and their families. We invite you to make a difference in collaboration with those who share a connection to our community! Working as women united in a common purpose is empowering for council members and grantees alike. You may join us as a member, attend an event to learn more and/or make a donation to support the investments we’ll make this year.


  • Amplify your giving by leveraging your dollars with those of other members.
  • Give voice to the issues affecting the women in our community by deciding with your peers on the Council which programs to fund.
  • See the impact of your giving as funded programs share accomplishments with membership that were made possible by the Council’s grants.
  • Develop new personal and professional relationships with other women.
  • Learn from workshops and conversations on philanthropy, women in philanthropy, issues and needs of women, how organizations are serving women, and trends and gaps in funding.

Member Responsibilities:

  • Make a one-time pledge with a variety of options to make payments affordable.
  • Participate in the Council grantmaking process, a cooperative effort to select the recipients of grants. This may include identifying organizations and programs to fund, reviewing proposals, conducting site visits, and voting on grant recommendations.
  • Provide good stewardship and thought partnership to the Council with your active and positive participation. This may include attending meetings, or planning events to attract new members
  • Connect Women to Women with organizations and stakeholders doing work on behalf of women in the Greensboro area.

Membership Levels:

Women to Women has grown from four determined women to 130 members (87 leading donors). As a member you can make an impact too. We invite you to become part of this strong leadership of Greensboro women with your one-time pledge. Leave a legacy by helping to ensure all women in Guilford County have the opportunities they need to reach their highest potential.

Pledges can be paid over 5 years.
