Give the special women in your life a truly meaningful gift – a donation to Greenville Women Giving’s Endowment in your SHEro’s name!

Our 2023 Campaign Has Closed

Who is a SHEro?

For young children, it could be a mother, sister, grandmother, or aunt. As their world expands, perhaps a teacher, doctor, church leader, or coach who encourages her dream and becomes an inspiration. Later, inspiration is everywhere – a friend, a daughter or daughter-in-law, and the list goes on. The reality is: everyone has a SHEro who has positively impacted their life.

Honor your SHEro

Greenville Women Giving has created a way for its supporters to honor the women who have encouraged and inspired them, through a contribution to the GWG Endowment. The Endowment was established at the culmination of GWG’s Tenth Anniversary to ensure the continued impact of women giving collectively, granting strategically, and growing a greater Greenville.

How will GWG honor the SHEroes?

In the May 12 issue of Greenville Journal, there will be a full page listing every SHEro and the person who is honoring or memorializing her. For example,

          Susan Smith, honored by Alice Smith          

For each SHEro you recognize, we will send a card informing her (or a designee) of this recognition made in her honor.

What do I need to do to honor a SHEro?

A minimum donation of $50 to the GWG Endowment by April 15 will allow you to honor one SHEro. There’s no limit to how many women you can honor – and you can honor them year after year!

Is honoring a SHEro limited to GWG members?

No. Any woman or man who wishes to honor a SHEro can participate.

GWG Endowment

GWG is an important part of the philanthropic fabric of Greenville County. The endowment has two objectives,

(1) to help ensure the current level of participation in perpetuity and
(2) to allow for contributing to community needs that do not fall into the annual grant cycle.

The management and investment of the GWG Endowment is overseen by the Finance and Investment Committee of the Community Foundation of Greenville.
