We are an inclusive, volunteer run, women’s collective giving organization. Ten years ago, our founders established WIN to engage women in philanthropy and to collectively IMPACT the community while we celebrate and enjoy each other.

We award grants each year to nonprofits in one of four Areas of Giving. Applications are rewarded for innovative and collaborative projects. We talk about our values and we decide together where to put our talent, our time and our treasure.
