Pearls of Empowerment Announces Endowment Campaign
The core of the Pearls of Empowerment mission is raising funds to award grants that make a difference
in our community. At their November 17th annual meeting, Pearls announced $27,400 in grants awards
to three organizations that are making a positive difference for women and children in Davie County.
- Advocacy Center of Davie County received a $7,400 grant
- Dragonfly House Children’s Advocacy Center received a $10,000 grant
- Family Promise of Davie County received a $10,000 grant
To provide a sustaining source of grant making dollars, $35 of each $365 Pearls membership is added to
the Pearls of Empowerment Endowment held by the Davie Community Foundation. Every year, earnings from the endowment are distributed to make more money available for awarding grants. Along with investment earnings and the support of many women over the years, the Pearls of Empowerment Endowment has grown to almost $70,000!
Since the inception of Pearls, the annual distributions from the endowment have grown from $200 to
$3,135 this year. Pearls seeks to grow the endowment which increases the amount of grant dollars
distributed annually. In honor of their fifteenth anniversary in 2024, Pearls is launching the GIVE MORE
BY 2024 Campaign to add $15,000 to the Pearls of Empowerment Endowment.
The campaign was announced at their annual meeting. It will run until October 31, 2024. Pearls will
celebrate their success in adding $15,000, or more, to the endowment at the 2024 annual meeting. By
starting the campaign in 2022, ladies may commit to a larger gift that can be paid over a three-year
period in 2022, 2023, and 2024.

County women and children? Simply donate online or make your check payable to the Davie Community Foundation with Pearls Endowment noted in the memo section and send it to the Foundation at PO Box 546, Mocksville, NC 27028.
