Women for Women of Pitt County establishes charitable endowment fund at the North Carolina Community Foundation

The leadership of Women for Women of Pitt County recently announced the establishment of a charitable endowment fund at the North Carolina Community Foundation.

Women for Women of Pitt County was founded in 2005 and is focused on bettering the lives of women and girls locally in Pitt County. Women for Women has a deep history of grantmaking and community impact in Pitt County, has made $750,000 in local grants throughout its history and is proud to continue that work through a charitable endowment fund at the North Carolina Community Foundation.

This new arrangement will help Women for Women of Pitt County redouble its focus on the mission of serving local women and girls, according to Allyson Daugherty, board chair. “The goal was an endowment that would be able to provide grant funds in perpetuity to organizations that support women and girls of Pitt County,” she said. “The organization’s needs had outgrown what we were able to provide, and NCCF has the infrastructure and outreach to be able to leverage resources and increase capacity in our community.”

The North Carolina Community Foundation is honored to welcome Women for Women of Pitt County, according to Jennifer Tolle Whiteside, NCCF CEO and president. “We are so grateful to Women for Women of Pitt County for trusting us to steward this endowment fund,” she said. “We are honored to serve as a partner and philanthropic home to this critical philanthropy.”

Women for Women of Pitt County plans to make local grants available to nonprofits serving women, children and families in the community early next year.
