We are excited to be partnering with World Relief Seattle for this year's Holiday Volunteer Opportunity. World Relief Seattle was founded in 1979 and is the largest refugee and immigrant resettlement organization in our community. Participants will work with immigrant and refugee women to assemble sewing kits for their sewing classes and garden kits for families who will be given plots in the World Relief Community Garden opening in spring 2018. We will also have lunch catered by and with the women. This event has limited space so please rsvp soon. $25 per person registration helps cover the cost of lunch and the kit supplies.

When women work together, there is a power unlike any other! Come to this program to learn more about joining a group of motivated women tackling complex issues in our community through collective grant making and leadership development. This informal information session will share the many ways a WA Women's membership can impact your life and build a stronger Washington for all.

This will be our first Member Basics Mixer! We will play Washington Women's Foundation Trivia and mingle with members. Please register to attend if you are interested in joining the Foundation or if you're a current member interested in getting more involved. Light refreshments and wine will be availible.

We offer Membership Basics programs every month. If the dates of our Membership Basics sessions don't work for you, please contact Morgan at morgan@wawomensfoundation.org to schedule an individual meeting at a time convenient for you. 

We look forward to meeting you!
