We are thrilled to announce the Network of Enterprising Women (N.E.W.) Scholarship Fund is the recipient of funds from our July meeting. They will receive $6,300 for their work in our community ($100 from each of 60 members plus $300 additional from a member passionate about the cause!).
The Network of Enterprising Women (N.E.W.) was started in 1988 by Shirley Wagner and Debbie Johnston, two professional businesswomen seeking to build a women’s networking group meeting on a monthly basis. These two women, joined by several others, met in a small local restaurant. Eventually, the group expanded and the meeting location moved to a larger restaurant. Along the way, N.E.W. became a nonprofit organization, with a board of directors, which hosts many events outside the monthly networking luncheon.
The main goal of N.E.W. is to assist and encourage women who desire to become established in business, and to promote and foster the exchange of knowledge and understanding of methods for success in establishing and maintaining a business.
Funds from River City Givers will support the N.E.W Scholarship Fund which provides multiple $1,000 scholarships to area high school senior girls to help offset costs.
