Thank you to our fabulous WCGN Board Members and 2015 Conference Co-chairs Sonja Nichols (left) and Dianne Chipps Bailey (right) from Women’s Impact Fund in Charlotte, NC for a standout event!

Merrill Lynch is a proud supporter of the Women’s Collective Giving Grantmakers Network.   "With their rising economic strength, increasing role in corporate leadership and philanthropic priorities, women are helping to drive global change. We are honored to sponsor such an important group of women impacting the lives of many in their community. Merrill Lynch and the Women’s Collective Giving Grantmakers Network share the commitment to develop women through philanthropic leadership. “

 Thank you to our National Leadership Forum luncheon sponsor, Grant Thornton

"WCGN responds to community needs across the country with energy, enthusiasm and generosity. At Grant Thornton, we do the same in all the communities we serve – it’s an important part of our culture that we share with the Network. That’s why we’re so pleased to be a sponsor of the WCGN 2015 National Leadership Forum this year, and to work with these powerful women in serving our neighbors.”

Charlotte attendees shared what they took away from the recent conference:
'What I value most is having examples of success and steps to apply when trying new approaches, like social media tools, new ways for partnering with organizations and as grant maker, and the young fellows programs.'

'I learned without re-inventing the wheel, like how to communicate more effectively, how to reach the next generation and how to be more pro-active in finding partners for projects.'

'WCGN adds value by giving us a national presence and sharing information among sister groups.  My three biggest lessons had to do with websites, communication planning and endowments.'

'I took away inspiration about thinking big, inclusiveness, and bold leadership.'
