On April 7, 2022  SHARE Charlotte, the Women’s Impact Fund and the Junior League of Charlotte hosted the first ever #WomenGiveCLT at the Mint Musum in Uptown. This was amazing evening with almost 400 women in attendance!

This first of it’s kind event was created to bring together women’s collective giving organizaitons as as any philanthropically minded women’s in Charlotte to meet 50 local nonprofits to:

  • Learn about innovative, new nonprofits who are addressing Mecklenburg County communities' most pressing needs

  • Meet some of the nonprofits that Women's Impact Fund and The Junior League financially support

  • Connect with other philanthropically-minded women in Charlotte

We aso had a chance to hear from Dianne Chipps Bailey, evangelist for women’s philanthropy and volunteerism. Dianne has more than 20 years of experience working with nonprofits and is a founding member of the Women's Impact Fund and Sustaining Member of the Junior League of Charlotte. Dianne is also the Chair of the Women's Philanthropy Institute National Council and a featured TEDx speaker on "The Case for Fierce Optimism."
