Help celebrate our 10th anniversary of making significant grants in the community. Plan to attend, bring a friend and meet our new grantees.

In the past, the Women's Fund's Presentation of Funds Luncheon was underwritten for members only. Although we are actively seeking underwriting this year, members and guests are asked to pay for their luncheon costs. We want to ensure that all annual contributions continue to be directed to the grants pool.

Look for your electronic invitation to the Presentation Luncheon in the
April 1st Women's Fund Newsletter.

The path to our April 28 Awards Luncheon has several steps:
  • Women's Fund members who joined by December 31, 2013, created a pool of donated funds to be distributed in Spring 2014.
  • After nearly a year of research, our Research Committee is completing a ballot of deserving nonprofit candidates to be considered for 2013-14 Women's Fund grants.
  • In March, eligible Women's Fund members will vote for the agencies they'd like to receive funds from the grants pool. For the second year, voting will be by electronic ballot to avoid print and postage costs.
  • On April 4th, the poll will close and the votes will be tallied.
  • On April 28th at the Presentation of Funds Luncheon, we will announce our 2013-14 grant recipients.
