"To bring about a better world, let us all strive together with vision, with courage, and with optimism."
During this special time of the year, we want to take this opportunity to say “Thank you!” Thank you for sharing your time, talent and treasure with Women Give San Diego, so that we can positively impact the economic self-sufficiency and security of women and families in our community. And, thank you for sharing your energy and inspiration!
We are so very grateful you have chosen to engage in this dynamic Donor Circle, serving as champions for advancing the status of women and girls. We consider it an honor (and delight!) to work with this amazing group of women.
We hope you share our pride in all Women Give San Diego has accomplished in two short years. Collectively, we have:
▪ Completed a comprehensive research report on self-sufficiency and security for women and girls in San Diego County
▪ Year 1, 2010 – Granted $46,000, with $23,000 granted over two years each, to three thoroughly vetted nonprofits; leveraged $26,000 from the Gary and Mary West Foundation
▪ Year 2, 2011 – Granted $67,000 with $33,500 granted for 2 years each, to three thoroughly vetted nonprofits
▪ Formed six effective member leadership teams to reach our goals
Each and every one of YOU have helped to make this possible. Be proud!
We know you join us in sending our Founding President and inspiration, June Tuttleman, our love, positive energy and healing thoughts her way. We will welcome June back with open arms, as she restores her energy and continues her journey towards health!
Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season and a very Happy New Year! We look forward to an exciting and productive 2012. Together, we can make life better for the most vulnerable women and families in communities throughout San Diego.
With admiration and appreciation,
Linda and Gayle
