Overview

Mission Statement

The Women of Wilmington (WOW) was founded with the simple yet powerful purpose of helping, however possible, local individuals and families in need.
The Women of Wilmington is organized exclusively for charitable purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c) (3) of the IRS. WOW shall receive and disburse funds, property and gifts of any kind exclusively for the benefit of the families and residents of Wilmington, as well as those persons and organizations that support families and residents of Wilmington. The organization will focus on family based charitable opportunities to support individuals, children and families, as well as other local organizations that support the community.

Background Statement

The Women of Wilmington was founded by a group of friends who have informally been doing community service projects in the Town of Wilmington and surrounding areas for years together. After organizing a large event for a family in need (the husband had ALS and passed away on the day of the event) the group realized that it needed to become an official group and become an organized effort in town.

Impact Statement

The past year was a year of continued growth for WOW. The organization increased its membership to over 370 members and continued to support families and individuals in need with services such as meal deliveries, clothing and other items as well as gift cards for necessities such as groceries. WOW also continued to support other local organizations in town such as the Wilmington Food Pantry by organizing donation drives and donating food items, toiletries and household cleaning supplies to the familes involved in the Pantry. Finally, WOW continued to expand its "Adopt a Child" program, furnishing funds for children to participated in extra-curricular programs its family could not otherwise afford. As part of this program, WOW adopted 10 families for the holiday season and provided gifts to all family members as well as gift cards for necessities. WOW continues to work with the public school system to promote community service within the classroom and has assisted in distributing donations from pajama drives, food drives and other activities.
The major goals for this year are to find other opportunities for members and expand the Board to allow for more volunteers in leadership roles to faciliate more service opportunities for members. We will also begin exploring obtaining a physical space for service projects and potentially to launch a community center type facility for the town. We have become the hub of charitable organizations within Wilmington and will continue to explore ways to support other organizations missions for community development and support.

Needs Statement

organization of volunteers to do more community service
more community service opportunities within the town
stronger intake process to confirm families in need are not receiving help elsewhere

CEO Statement

The Women of Wilmington started out as a small dream that has blossomed into a beautiful reality. We are a group of people, young and old, male and female, who come together to assist in the Town of Wilmington wherever there is a need.

Board Chair Statement

Because we have grown so quickly, we sometimes are challenged with keeping our volunteers engaged and being able to assist families in a timely manner. However, we have managed to do so much in such a short period of time and as the need grows, we have been able to continue to help families and individuals in need, support other organization's efforts and help promote community service and simple acts of kindness within our town.

Programs

Sponsor a Child

families can apply for funds so that their child may be able to participate in an activity that the family could not otherwise afford, either within their acadmic needs or as an extracurricular activity. Such activities have included tutoring, dance classes, athletic team member fees, and other types of classes.
Budget  $5,000 annually
Category  Youth Development, General/Other Youth Development, General/Other
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) Adolescents Only (13-19 years) K-12 (5-19 years)
Program Short-Term Success 
better self-confidence leads to better grades and better choices.
Program Long-Term Success 
As children become more engaged, they will be less likely to experiment in risky behavior.
Program Success Monitored By 
as of today, we only can measure if a child remains engaged in the activity and continues in it.
Examples of Program Success 
Again, this program has only been developed for a short time but to date, we have received feedback from families and collaterals involved with the child of positive improvement in behaviors due to the child's involvement in the activity.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
