Women’s Giving Network of Wake County announces junior membership

The Women’s Giving Network of Wake County announces a new Junior Membership to engage women under 40 in their philanthropic mission.

Women under the age of 40 can now join the giving network at a reduced half-off rate thanks to the generous sponsorship of existing members. “We are proud to offer the next generation the opportunity to engage in our community’s critical issues and learn about the power of positive impact through philanthropy,” said Laurie Hughes, network president.

The mission of the Women’s Giving Network of Wake County is to maximize women’s leadership in philanthropy by engaging and educating members, increasing charitable contributions, and strengthening the community through the impact of collective giving. The Network was started in 2006 by a group of creative leaders to connect and mobilize the resources and talents of women seeking to learn about and positively impact the critical needs of women and children in Wake County. Since its inception, WGN has awarded more than $1.1 million in grants to 35 area nonprofits.
