Washington Area Women’s Foundation is supported by the generosity of donors who are determined to help end poverty in our community by investing in women and girls. Whether donating as individuals, participating in a giving circle, or planning a legacy, this community of changemakers is moving from charity to catalytic philanthropy — and real impact.

Become a Donor

Individual donors are essential to the sustainability and growth of the Foundation. As part of the new $6.5 million Campaign to Prosperity, The Women’s Foundation has recently changed its donor recognition structure to offer more opportunities for donors to give at a variety of levels.

Join a Giving Circle

The Women’s Foundation has two giving circles that enable members to pool their resources and then decide together which nonprofits will receive their funds.
