The Cary Women’s Giving Network, a women’s collective giving circle, is hosting its first annual grants awards luncheon Thursday, February 21, at 11:30 at The Matthews House in Cary.

            The event celebrates three local grantees who are receiving grants awards from the circle: CORRAL Riding Academy, The Carying Place, and Dorcas Ministries. The Network membership voted last month to award the grants after a competitive grant application process.         

            The event is open to the public. Tickets are available for $25 by contacting The Matthews House at 919-467-1944. Tickets must be purchased by February 18.

            “We’re very excited to support these three non-profits that are serving the people of Cary,” remarked Sarah Perkins, Cary Women’s Giving Network Grants Committee Chair. “Our membership is eager to use their collective giving power to make a difference in the lives of people in need. These three non-profits are our first recipients, and we look forward to adding to the number of grantees in the coming years.”

             The Cary Women’s Giving Circle is a fund of the Cary Community Foundation, an affiliate of the North Carolina Community Foundation (NCCF). With 35 members, the circle is expanding its membership. To learn more about the circle, contact Michelle Muir at
