Grants from Women in Philanthropy are awarded to nonprofit 501(c)(3) groups in the Pee Dee region with total assets less than $750,000 that support the needs of the underprivileged in the community.

Funds are given to programs that address an existing or emerging community need, including health, nutrition or assistance to victims of violence, neglect or poverty.

Women in Philanthropy is a giving circle founded in 2009 that provides an opportunity for a group of caring and focused women to collectively learn about philanthropic issues and address needs in the following Pee Dee counties: Chesterfield, Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Marion, Marlboro and Williamsburg.

Membership is open to any woman who is interested in improving the quality of life for all residents in the Pee Dee. Each member makes a financial contribution to the giving circle and votes to decide which organizations are selected to receive grants.

Women in Philanthropy has awarded $450,000 in its previous 10 grant cycles to 44 nonprofit organizations serving the Pee Dee.
