WIT-NC is committed to giving back to our community. In 2007, we initiated our endowment program to do just this. Every year we support students of international trade, women entering the workforce, women entrepreneurs, girls in rural areas and underprivileged children. Here are the programs that we are currently supporting:
WIT-NC participates in Kiva, a micro-lending organization. Kiva is the world's first person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals (such as WIT-NC) to lend directly to unique entrepreneurs in the developing world.
From December 2007 to October 2014 we have made over 530 loans to projects throughout the world. As of October 2014 our loans have totaled $24,025 with over $22,000 repaid. We had an initial donation of $2,500 and will continue to re-loan this money. We have donated to female entrepreneurs in 49 countries supporting agriculture, arts, clothing, education, transportation, construction, health, and manufacturing.
Family Giving Tree
The Family Giving Tree fulfills the exact holiday wish and provides backpacks filled with school supplies to those children in the most need in our communities while inspiring the values of kindness, philanthropy and volunteerism.
WIT-NC members are asked to bring a new toy to our December meeting to be donated to Family Giving Tree.
