2020 PHILANTHROPIC ORGANIZATION OF THE YEAR
WIN is a diverse group of women who aim to harness the power of our collective giving, to make an impact in New Hanover County
2020 WIN AGM
The 2020 WIN AGM had lots to celebrate, starting with the announcement of the AFP's Philanthropic Organization of the Year award! In addition to updates on the financial health of the organization, members took a look back at the achievements and highlights of the year, noted the transition from the 2020 Area of Giving (Environment) to the 2021 Area of Giving (Arts and Culture), and welcomed the new Board. The meeting ended with Outgoing Board Chair Kristine Moore welcoming incoming Board Chair Isabella Hinds.

RELEVANCE AND IMPACT
In June, WIN’s Book Club read The Art of Relevance, by Nina Simon. The book generated a remarkable Zoom discussion on how we can expand our relevance to members, new and future. How open are our doors to newcomers? And, once those newcomers are inside, how do we keep each member engaged and willing to share their skills to make a unique Impact in New Hanover County? The Book Club highly recommends this book to every WIN member.
