Here’s How Women for Women works:

I joined WFW after the annual luncheon. The sheer number of women present, the speaker and her message, the grants and their direct and considerable impact – all of these things combined with the confidence I have in CFWNC led to my decision.
 – Leah Wong Ashburn, member since 2015
  • Members commit to a tax-deductible gift of $1,100 per year for three years.
  • Members learn about regional issues affecting women and girls and make high-impact grants that help disadvantaged women.
  • Each member has a voice and a vote in how funds are distributed.
  • The level of participation in group activities – such as reviewing grant proposals or making site visits – is totally flexible and set by each individual.

The expertise and guidance of key leaders and organizations is sought in Women for Women’s research, grantmaking and educational activities. As a result, each member becomes a more inspired and informed philanthropist.
