POW! announces grant finalists for 2021

The Partnership of Women referred to as POW! (pronounced like WOW!) is honored to announce its 2021 grant finalists.

Finalists will be awarded at POW!'s Annual Dinner on Thursday, November 4, at Farmer and Frenchman Winery. Doors will open at
5:30 in the evening with dinner and presentations beginning at 6.

POW!'s three finalists are The Gathering Place – Henderson Senior Center, Christian Community Outreach of Henderson and Marsha’s Place. These three were chosen after POW! members made on-site visits and thoroughly reviewed all grant applications submitted during their open grant cycle.

The three finalists will give a short no-frills presentation on why they should receive the largest impact grant. One $15,000 award will be given and the runners up will receive $3,000 each based on votes of the members and tabulated by local accounting firm Kemper CPA Group.

POW! has awarded more than $150,000 in grants in eight years. POW! raises money through individual and group memberships and supporting operational sponsorships. Annually, about half the money raised is awarded to local non-profits in that grant year; the other half is invested in an endowment fund through the Community Foundation of Henderson. This endowment will allow POW! to continue to give in perpetuity, increasing its future impact.

If you are interested in becoming a member of POW! or wish to reserve a seat as a member or a guest at the annual dinner, please contact Susan Sauls at ssauls@twc.com.
