WITH TWO DAUGHTERS OF MY OWN, I want to set an example of giving back to the community. I love supporting the Women’s Fund because my donations affect many different organizations and programs that help women and girls.
The Women’s Fund empowers women and girls in the Fox Valley region through grants, advocacy, and education. By engaging in philanthropic activity and leveraging community collaboration, we envision a community where women and girls:
Locally, nationally and worldwide, women and girls are disproportionately represented among the uneducated; the poorest of the poor; and those who are physically, sexually, and emotionally abused. Without a focused intentional effort on addressing the issues that impact them, this population will continue to remain underserved and disenfranchised. We believe that the full participation of women and girls is the key to a strong, equitable, and sustainable community.
