Welcome to the Carmel Valley Women's Club
FUND A SCHOLAR
President’s Message—A Generous Gift and An Urgent Request
As the CVWC tackles seismic shifts in its plan and presentation for the coming years, I’m reminded of the French phrase, plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose, translated
loosely, the more things change, the more they stay the same.
We are the same, the same closely-knit club that has organized a successful scholarship program producing nearly half a million dollars in grants over its past 75–year history. That hasn’t changed as a goal. How we do it is evolving. And in its evolution, we’re discovering new inroads in how to continue our philanthropy, and at the same time, develop new programs to promote who we are in the community and attract new members.
To help us along our way, we have just been presented with an outstanding contribution from one of our members, in this case, a gift from a family foundation that will allow us to meet this year’s challenge for the scholarship program, and at the same time, give us a chance to reorganize.
The gift is $5,000, and it comes from The Terry Family Foundation. It is offered as a matching grant for us and a challenge to raise an additional $5,000 or more to award this year’s scholarship winners. This offers us the much needed breathing room we require to keep our philanthropy going as we develop new fund-raising activities to replace our fashion show.
I hope we are all on board with this wonderful challenge grant! What a beautiful, exciting opportunity to show our community and ourselves just how capable we are at reorganization and production! Climb on board as we headfor new horizons.
Plan on attending the fund raising April event of the CVWC to be held at Los Laureles Lodge. It will take place on Sunday, April 26th, from 1 to 4 p.m.,and hopefully the CVWC ladies will bring their spouses and others with them. The charge is $45.00. We’ll have hors d’oeuvres, wine, music, and just a few fun- and fund-raising games.
I’ll look forward to seeing you—all of you--there, with friends, as we raise funds and a glass, and set sail for new adventures in our same/new club!
