HandbagReport.com is thrilled to be involved with a fundraiser called “Power of the Purse“, hosted by Women In Philanthropy, a group of women in Columbia, South Carolina investing to improve the lives of women and children through active leadership and collective philanthropy. The investments of Women in Philanthropy create positive, measurable, long-term change in the lives of women and children by focusing on root causes and pooling resources to increase our impact.
In addition to community philanthropy, Women in Philanthropy stimulates positive change in community leadership by increasing women’s involvement in the community, increasing women’s community networks and increasing the personal development of all women involved. They have awarded over a half million dollars in grants since 2002. The event is in its 8th year and includes a silent and live auction of purses to benefit local women and children charities.
