Give Thanks! Women’s Fund Fall 2012 Event – the Power of the 51%

Women’s Fund supporters gathered on October 30th to hear two inspiring speakers. Gregg Tripoli, Executive Director of the Onondaga Historical Association, high-lighted three women who have enhanced Central New York with their giving. Then, Aminy Audi, President of L. & J.G. Stickley and a Women’s Fund Founder, spoke about women’s philanthropy and the Women’s Fund of CNY. Mrs. Audi summarized giving into three categories: Duty Giving where you feel obliged to give, Grudge Giving where you feel forced to give, and Thanks Giving where you want to give. Thanks Giving is the most powerful because you give of your heart.

Thanks Giving is clearly what established our Women’s Fund. Over 14 years, hundreds of women have given of their time, talent and treasure to move us towards our million dollar endowment goal and to support, empower and recognize the women and girls in Central New York. 

The Women's Fund of Central New York is a component fund of the Central New York Community Foundation.
