How Does Power in the Purse Work?
Power in the Purse (PIP) is a Women's Giving Circle whose purpose is to strengthen the community and help support nonprofit organizations through collective giving. PIP members meet quarterly, and in as little as one hour, can make a positive impact in our community!
It's simple......As a member, you may nominate an eligible nonprofit charity. Three nominations will be drawn at each meeting. If your nominee is drawn, you will have five minutes to share about the organization with a Q & A time to follow. Members will select the winning organization by secret ballot and donations will be collected. Together we can make a difference! If you would like to become a member of PIP or would like more information, please message or call the Foundation at 419-633-1156. ... See MoreSee Less
