Women of Fearrington History

Women of Fearrington, Inc., began in 1987 as the Fearrington Women's Club, a social club for Village women. In 2008, the group expanded to include Galloway Ridge residents and revised its mission to embrace a changing constituency and changing interests.

Renamed Women of Fearrington, the group incorporated in 2011 and is now a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization, a designation that will enhance the organization's effectiveness in supporting grant projects that aid Chatham County's women and children.

WoF is committed to nurturing, educating and entertaining its members, fostering their friendships with others and strengthening involvement in the Fearrington/Galloway Ridge community as well as Pittsboro and Chatham County.
