Job Fair for AmeriCorps and VISTAs on July 8

Posted By SCANPO, Tuesday, June 28, 2016

AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps VISTA are hosting a job fair!

Several AmeriCorps and VISTA members will be finishing their year of service in the next few months (Americorps July 30 and VISTA August 19) and are looking for opportunities to put the skills and experience they've gained into action in the workplace.

Friday July 8, 2016 from 1:15 to 2:30 p.m.

Hollingsworth Conference Room, United Way of Greenville, 105 Edinburgh Court, Greenville, SC.

AmeriCorps and VISTA believe it is important to retain a pool of skilled, dedicated individuals in the Upstate community and are hosting this event to connect their members with agencies such as yours that recognize some of the unique qualities national service members possess, such as leadership, teamwork, flexibility, problem-solving, and innovation.

RSVP here by July 1 if you wish to attend. There is no registration fee to participate.

Women in Philanthropy

Posted By SCANPO, Tuesday, June 28, 2016

According to a new report from "The Chronicle of Philanthropy," women today have more clout when it comes to philanthropic giving. 

In fact, research conducted by the Women’s Philanthropy Institute at Indiana University’s Lilly Family School of Philanthropy demonstrates that women-led households are more philanthropic than men-led households. 

Nowhere is this more evident than in Pee Dee's Women in Philanthropy, a local group dedicated to the principle that, collectively, women can make a difference in their communities. 

Since its inception in 2009, Women in Philanthropy has awarded more than a quarter of a million dollars in grants to local charities 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 citizens 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.

Applications for Women in Philanthropy's eighth annual grant cycle is available July 15. The deadline to apply is August 31. Grants will be awarded on December 1. 

Grants from Women in Philanthropy are awarded to nonprofit 501(c) 3 groups in the Pee Dee region, with operating budgets 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 and/or assistance to victims of violence, neglect or poverty.

This expansion opportunity will be focused on the following counties: Anderson, Spartanburg, York, Newberry, Laurens, Pickens, Oconee, Lancaster, Union and Florence.

Two information sessions are available for eligible organizations. Children’s Trust strongly encourages organizations planning to submit an application to participate in one of these forums:
