Power in the Purse (PIP) is a group of women who share a common desire to give back to the community. PIP is a special initiative through the Bryan Area Foundation that enables women to direct their giving in purposeful and strategic ways. PIP also provides opportunities to support programs that enable and empower women to improve the quality of life in Williams County.
PIP members meet quarterly, learn about the needs of local nonprofit organizations and vote for one organization to receive their collective donation. Through collective giving ($250 annually per member), PIP members will make a significant impact on local nonprofit organizations.
To learn more about PIP and how you can become a member,
