The Women’s Legacy Fund hosted its Spring luncheon on Thursday, May 12 at Gulf Harbour Yacht & Country Club exclusively for its WLF contributors and Prima Donors.
The “working” luncheon featured table discussions exploring cause areas identified and researched in our region to determine the fund’s next cause area for grants benefitting women and girls in Southwest Florida. Discussions focused on intergenerational activities, career exploration and youth activities for young women, women and girls.
“Our contributors are interested in taking a deeper dive into the WLF grant focus areas before making their votes on what to fund, so we formatted the luncheon to be a more intimate gathering in order for everyone to explore and discuss cause areas as a group of collective philanthropists,” said Sarah Owen, president and CEO of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation. “This type of thinking and talking together further proves that we can do so much more together than we could ever do alone.”
The feedback and votes will be used to determine the next area of funding for the WLF’s 2016 grant recipient.
A fund of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, the Women’s Legacy Fund is a group of women who foster the immersion of women in philanthropy and develop the region’s next philanthropic leaders.
