Benefacting is a one-of-a-kind tool that is revolutionizing the philanthropy industry by letting people give back using their skills, hobbies and interests to raise money for a cause of their choice. Here’s how it works: Transactions on the website are called “Benefactions”
“When we first heard about Benefacting, we knew it would be a great way for our organization to give back as a group and to support charities that were important to us as individuals,”
FemCity Raleigh is an inclusive community of savvy business women from diverse backgrounds who are passionate about helping other professional women succeed in their work and in their communities. The group places emphasis on connecting women with the resources they need to be successful as well as taking advantage of opportunities to give back.
“FemCity Raleigh is really known among nonprofits in the area for its great community outreach programs,” said Trevor Little, co-founder of Benefacting. “We’re excited to be a part of its continued efforts to give back, and can’t wait to see what great skills these women bring to the site. We have no doubt they’ll raise a lot of money for wonderful causes throughout the Raleigh, Durham area.”
The community is also invited to join FemCity Raleigh members as part of this campaign. Adult, professional women in Raleigh can join the campaign and post their own Benefactions. Interested women should contact the campaign organizer for access by following the prompts on www.benefacting.org/
