Women & Girls Fund board members, past and present, celebrated the Fund’s 20th Anniversary at a luncheon on January 17, 2023 at the Tidewater Inn

Founder Alice Ryan hosted the event to thank members for their service and to honor their many accomplishments over the past 20 years. She noted each board member brought significant skills to the board and contributed to the organization’s ongoing success. Over the past 20 years, the Women & Girls Fund, a component fund of the Mid-Shore Community Foundation, has built an endowment fund of $1.6M and awarded grants totaling more than $782,000 to 105 Mid-Shore non-profits. Here’s to the next 20 years!

Thank you to all our players and sponsors for their support!
