Making a Difference Together

Women In Numbers (WIN) is an organization made up of women motivated by the desire to create positive social change by funding programs in vest in the advancement of our community. WIN pools gifts of all sizes from a broad base of donors to support our grant-making, education and advocacy work.

​We are women making a positive impact on the lives of those within Murray-Calloway County, Kentucky. Women with diverse backgrounds contribute $500.00 to maintain their membership. Membership in WIN is for one year. Leader  members are for 5-year commitments. 

Half of the funds are placed into a permanent endowment. The other half will be disbursed to the community at an annual dinner. It is that simple. 

If the monetary commitment is keeping you from joining, don’t! $500.00 can be (i) an individual donation which is equal to 1 vote), (ii) comprised by a group of 4 women or less to create 1 vote or (iii) you can give any amount and attend the annual dinner whether you gather enough to vote or not. 

WIN has no requirements regarding a woman’s participation in the organization. If a woman has time constraints, she contributes her $500.00 and attends the annual meeting/dinner to help choose the grant recipient(s) for that year. 

However, if a woman has the time and desire, she can be an active member by serving as an advisory board member or be a member of a committee. Women may participate in site visits of finalists and can actively assist the organization in selecting the grant recipients. Each  member’s participation is dependent upon her personal situation and may change from year to year. 

WIN has very limited expenses. The administrative costs relating to WIN and its operations are either donated, or are paid for by using administrative monies held by WIN. The administrative monies are donations from Friends of WIN who make donations to cover administrative costs, sponsors and interest earned on the grant monies prior to the disbursement of the grants to the  recipients. The endowment fund itself is managed at less than 1.5% of the principal.
