Greenwood Women Care (GWC) engages community-minded Greenwood women in collective learning, giving, and growing together. GWC grows through membership of a broad range of women from many professional and personal sectors, and is perpetually open to new members. Each participant will contribute an equal amount annually and have an equal vote in granting determinations.
GWC is self-determining in governance and operations. An active steering committee of women are giving a strong foundation and shape to this initiative. More participation is always welcomed on this committee, as well as in the leadership and activities of core committees. Our plan includes continued membership development, with social and learning events starting in 2018, and the adoption of a granting process, with GWC community grants to be awarded starting in the first quarter of 2019.
The overarching goal of GWC is to allow participants the opportunity for personal growth, to develop as engaged members of our community, and to improve the quality of life for everyone in Greenwood County. The tagline serves as an abbreviated reminder of Greenwood Women Care’s mission:
learn • give • grow.
