The newest of our giving circles, SisterFund creates a participatory and meaningful experience in which African American women of all ages and careers can come together to support each other and the community they love. By pooling their resources, members can increase the impact of their giving.
SisterFund was founded in 2015 by several committed and passionate individuals including Veronica Fleming, The Honorable Cynthia Newbille, Greta J. Harris, Evette T. Roots, The Honorable Ellen F. Robertson, and The Honorable Delores McQuinn. Its purpose is to educate members about the power of collective philanthropy, broaden awareness about issues affecting African American women and girls in our region, and to support nonprofits serving this population.
SisterFund seeks to invest in nonprofits and community-based organizations helping to pave a positive future for African American women and girls through gains in education, workforce and leadership development.
Nonprofits can submit applications to be considered for a single, combined grant of $40,000.
