Volunteering with the Women's Fund

Most volunteers choose to join a committee. Committees are chaired by a member of the Board of Directors. 

Community Impact

The Community Impact Committee serves as the point of contact for our grantees. The committee performs follow up visits during the annual grant period to understand the shifting needs of women and girls in our community and reviews new grant applications annually, making recommendations to Board for grant awards.
