WIN is now a separate organization.

As of Nov. 1, 2017, the Women's Impact Network is an independent organization and no longer a program of the North Carolina Community Foundation.

WIN’s phenomenal membership growth has allowed it to transition beyond a giving circle to a full-fledged membership organization offering a wide array of philanthropic experiences. WIN will continue to focus on grantmaking tailored to local needs and will also offer education and social experiences for members. The focus of NCCF's women's giving networks remains grounded in grantmaking.

“We are so proud of what WIN has accomplished in just over five years and see this move as a natural part of its growth process,” said Anne Sorhagen, a WIN member and NCCF’s regional director for the southeast, which includes New Hanover County.
