More than an organization, the University of Kentucky Women & Philanthropy Network is a movement – a gathering of like–minded women who are joining their collective talents and resources to make a positive impact on the University and its extraordinary students. The Women & Philanthropy Network is motivating and uniting women as leaders, donors and advocates for the University of Kentucky.
Since it began, the Women & Philanthropy Network has awarded more than $1.3 million to scholarship recipients, colleges and programs. These significant awards have been made possible through pooling contributions of $1,000 per member per year. Members vote annually to grant their combined funds to students, programs and research projects across UK’ss campus. A summary of funded proposals from 2009-2015 can be found here (PDF).
This year’s recipients represent a diverse selection of initiatives, in areas including business, communication, student retention, fine arts and more. To learn more about this year’s recipients, click here (PDF).
