Power of the Purse 2020

Friday, October 23, 2020

11:30am – 12:45pm: Live-streamed program

While we were saddened by the realization that the Power of the Purse would not be taking place in-person this year; TFEC values the health and safety of our community above all else. Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Power of the Purse will be taking place virtually!

Event Highlights

Once again, our silent auction will be taking place virtually. Attendees will receive instructions on setting up your account and placing bids online following your registration. Our online bidding platform is compatible with smartphones, tablets, and desktops, so feel free to use any device to shop! The online auction will open on Friday, October 16, 2020, at noon and remain open until 1:00 pm on Friday, October 23, 2020, for participants to bid any time during that week.

Attendees will be sent instructions on how to access the live-stream following your registration.

The Fund for Women & Girls is turning 20!

The Fund for Women & Girls has been changing lives since 2000. In celebration of our 20th anniversary, we created the VISIONARY grant. This grant opportunity will award five, $20,000 innovative, change-making grants to nonprofit organizations who seek to transform women’s education, economic opportunity, and access to health and wellness for decades to come, by addressing one or more of the following priorities:

  • Providing opportunities to address basic needs or develop economic self-sufficiency.
  • Providing opportunities to strengthen and address health and safety needs.
  • Providing opportunities for education.

We need your help to ensure that we can provide life-changing grants to women and girls in our community for the next 20 years and for many more anniversaries after that. Join our cause and help women and girls in our region through the power of collective philanthropy!
