WIN is a giving collective of more than 100 members, founded in 2012.  The organization has given grants over the past 8 years to applicants of all sizes and scale, in the following rotating Areas of Giving:  Education, Health and Wellness, Environment, and Arts and Culture.  Grants awarded have totaled $317,000 typically ranging from $2,500 to $30,000.  The common denominator of all the Grants awarded has been their potential for making an Impact in New Hanover County.

WIN Members are involved with community organizations in a myriad of ways: donating, volunteering, participating in their programs. We bring our collective experiences of both giving and receiving to the process of identifying where an extra resource can have a meaningful impact.

There are three parts to this process:

          • Understanding the needs of the community
          • Understanding how philanthropy can be most effective
          • Maximizing the impact of the grants themselves

As a community we try to address all three parts, through formal and informal gatherings, and by building on the relationships with the community organizations involved in the grant process.
