3 Questions With Greenville Women Giving

Friday, January 21, 2022 10:16 AM | Philanos Admin (Administrator)

Beverly, Diane, Mary, & Susan
Co-Chairs of Greenville Women Giving

GWG works collectively to identify and fund nonprofit organizations in the areas of arts, education, environment, health and human services in Greenville County, SC.

We recently spoke to Susan Cinquemani, Mary Hipp, Diane Perlmutter, and Beverly Ward, GWG Co-chairs and invited their thoughts on their current efforts!

What’s the most interesting effort your circle is focusing on right now?

One of the areas of our focus right now is our membership and membership committee. As our membership grew to over 500, we realized the need for a more dedicated effort in the areas of both new member growth/recruitment and current member engagement. Both areas require time and different approaches. After brainstorming and discussions, we decided to split our membership committee into two committees: Membership Engagement and Membership Growth.  Each committee has its own unique leadership, members, and duties. This year, beginning September 2021, is our first year with this two membership committee structure.

What is something your circle is currently challenged by?

Our biggest challenge is managing the ever-changing Covid situation.  We responded quickly in March 2020, moving to virtual events for our education sessions, grant selection, and annual meeting. In Fall 2021, we held successful hybrid events. It continues to take significant time for our leadership team as we are currently modifying plans based on Omicron's impact.

What Philanos resource has been most helpful to you this year, and why?

The availability of webinars for the GWG board and membership has been the most helpful Philanos resource.
