Because of the generosity and vision of The Women’s Fund members since 2009, the endowment is $488,230 as of April 2017.
Our members contribute the majority of funds to support the endowment (80% or $800 from each Architect member and 20% or $40 from each Advocate member). The Women’s Fund of the Shasta Regional Community Foundation has also received several generous donations for the endowment.
The strategic plan of The Women’s Fund, which recognizes the importance of educating its membership in regard to collective giving, includes a goal to grow its endowment to $500,000 by fiscal year 2019. At that time, The Women’s Fund will be able to add another $20,000 from the endowment to its annual grant making.
