Washington Women's Foundation

Washington Women's Foundation engages women in the power of collective giving. Through informed and strategic grantmaking, our members expand their knowledge, invest in the life of our community and demonstrate leadership through effective philanthropy.


We are a donor education and grantmaking membership organization of over 500 women who come together to pool and direct our financial and intellectual resources, learn about community issues and collaborate on their solutions, develop our own leadership skills, better focus our personal giving, and serve as philanthropic role models to others.

We welcome all women who want to make an impact through focused, collective grantmaking.  Click here to become a member today.
