Mission and focus

Our mission is to leverage women’s leadership in philanthropy and strengthen the Moore County community through the power of collective giving.

Our approach is to periodically bring members together to network, discover how we can leverage philanthropy and learn about community needs in the areas of women and/or children. We will invite local nonprofits who offer programming that serves women and/or children living in Moore County to apply through an annual competitive grants process. Visit this page for more information about applying through our online program.

Membership and benefits

We strongly believe that informed, empowered women can and do build stronger families, communities and economies. We invite you to join us to realize the power that collective philanthropy can have in our community.

Members contribute a minimum of $600 annually. Annual distributions include $500 for the annual grantmaking pool; $50 for administration; and $50 for the Moore Women – A Giving Circle permanent endowed fund held by the NCCF. Moore Women-A Giving Circle welcomes donations through sponsorships and general contributions, and members may make a higher annual donation. 

All members are entitled to one vote that determines the organization/s and program/s that will receive annual funding.

Prospective members must submit a signed commitment form and an initial contribution. For more information, please email Dawn Neighbors, NCCF regional director.
