In 2006 Blossom Benefit started in Kim Murphey’s living room with a small group of friends who came together to support others in need. Blossom grew from a few friends to a community of hundreds of women coming together each year to support women and girls. The women of Blossom raised over $60,000 directly supporting nonprofits in our community and internationally. Blossom was paused in 2014 after 9 years of fundraising and celebrating women and girls.
In 2017 a small group of women convened to discuss the future of Blossom and how to revitalize the work. The needs of women and girls locally, nationally, and globally are still central to Blossom’s values and are more important than ever.
In 2018 the organization, now know as just Blossom, transitioned to a new charitable giving model called giving circles to more fully engage women in our community in the work and to create space for women to gather in small groups, learn about issues impacting women and girls locally and internationally, and give collectively to ignite the change in the world we would like to see for women and girls.
