Honor Your SHEro

February 14, 2024

Each year, Greenville Women Giving (GWG) organizes a SHEro campaign that gives people an opportunity to honor women who have made a difference in their life. Naming a SHEro requires a minimum $50 donation to GWG Endowment, a fund that helps ensure GWG continues to contribute to local community needs in perpetuity.

The names of all SHEroes –– and those who honored them –– will be recognized in the Friday, May 10 edition of the Greenville Journal.

A SHEro may be a parent, sibling, friend, teacher, medical provider, or any woman who has guided, encouraged, empowered and otherwise made an unforgettable impact on the donor’s life. This year, a new type of recognition has been added, which is honoring women who are active in the five areas of Greenville Women Giving grantmaking: arts, education, environment, health, and human services.

There is no limit on the number of honorees an individual submits, but each requires a minimum $50 donation. Donationas are tax deductible and will be accepted through April 12.

To participate in the SHEro campaign, simply go to www.greenvillewomengiving.org and click the “Honor Your SHEro” button on the homepage. Follow the instructions to complete the donation.

To donate by check, download a printable PDF from the SHEro page of the GWG website. Complete the form and mail it with a check made payable to Greenville Women Giving to 630 E. Washington Street, Suite A, Greenville, S.C. 29601.
