Power of the Purse

Power of the Purse (PoP) is a charitable giving circle that was formed under the Foundation in August of 2007. Founded by a group of eight, they decided to organize some of the most powerful, positive & intelligent women to network and strengthen our community by financially investing together and giving of their time & resources.

The group has since grown to 40 members and has invested over $200,000 back into the community. Power of the Purse continues to focus its' efforts towards programs that benefit women and children in the community.
