The Women’s Fund of Door County continues a long history of successful events with more than 350 people attending the annual luncheon Wednesday. The day began with a panel discussion in the morning on “Women in Nontraditional Careers”. The keynote speaker at the luncheon was Elizabeth McCormick, a former US Army Black Hawk pilot and author. Prior to the luncheon Board Member Jane Stevenson shared the goal of the new Community Collaborative Grant the Women’s Fund established last year.
The Women’s Fund of Door County’s $1.2 million endowment campaign has a goal to fund $200,000 every three years for the Community Collaborative Grant with the first one being announced this fall. The endowment also will provide $30,000 every year in Sustainability Grants to area non-profits already working to positively impact the lives of women and girls.
