Give the Gift of Membership
Are you looking for that perfect gift for a woman you know? Friends, wives, mothers, daughters, and employees are among our current members who have been recipients of a Gift Membership in The Philanthropy Connection. You do not have to be a TPC member to give a Gift Membership… although sharing the TPC experience certainly is a lot of fun!
After spending two years as a grant recipient, I was trying to figure out how I might continue to be a part of TPC. Imagine how happy and a little shocked I was to receive a call just before Mother’s Day, letting me know someone had sponsored me. My shock faded quickly… if you spend any time within the TPC community, you quickly realize how common gestures like this are. The inspiring women of TPC welcome you with open arms capable of big bear hugs that wrap around you and hold and support you and your work. One of my biggest mom goals is to raise my children with strong hearts and a will to care for others, much like the behavior TPC women have modeled for me.

Support a TPC Fellow
Through TPC, I’ve learned about the importance of trust and humility in giving. Learning to give collectively has given me appreciation for the diversity of opinions and approaches to giving, as well as the challenges of giving well. In seeing the impact of connections created through TPC, I’ve seen the importance of local giving and of the non-monetary gifts of skills, time, learning, and sharing.

In order to support and encourage the next generation of women philanthropists, The Philanthropy Connection provides Fellowships to women between the ages of 18 and 35 who are interested in becoming part of the women’s collective giving movement, but cannot afford the $575 membership donation. As TPC’s reputation has grown, we receive many more Fellowship applications each year than we can fund. Fellowships, which are tax deductible and may be sponsored by members and non-members, are made possible by donations of $575. Learn more about TPC’s current Fellows.
