About the December Issue

And that’s a wrap on 2022.

Before we start making new plans and changes for 2023, let’s take a pause and enjoy the accomplishments from the year and celebrate with those around us.

A number of area nonprofits, several that work with girls and women, had reason to celebrate funding boosts this year including from the Landfall Foundation as well as from national philanthropist MacKenzie Scott, who gave this year to Communities in Schools of Cape Fear and the local Girl Scouts council.

This month’s issue also highlights women whose work has been recognized by the community. Bertha Boykin Todd, who participated in this year’s 1898 Commemoration to mark the 124th anniversary of the massacre and coup, talks about her decades of making an impact in Wilmington here.

Kitty Yerkes’ colleagues in the fundraising world honored her this year with the Cape Fear Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals’ inaugural Trailblazer Award, read more here.

Cheers to them all and everyone else who made their marks in 2022.
