Please Read: Website Updates!


Dear GIVING WoMN Members, Future Members, Grantees and Collaborators,

Thank you for all you do for GIVING WoMN! We are so glad you have landed here on our home page looking for more information, a membership form or recent grants news. Welcome!

Currently we are redesigning our website to be a better interface for our wide audience to this site. While you will find forms for membership and other important items for GIVING WoMN, we will not be updating our events nor updates through this site until our new site launches in the late summer/early fall of 2023.

Where can you find information on events? Please use our other communications platforms!

You can find us on:

Facebook at GIVING WoMN – look for our green and pink logo! A monthly copy of our latest newsletter is housed there as well as a full list of upcoming and past events.

The monthly Newsletter is sent to all members on or about the first of each month (except July and August) but it features all upcoming events, links to RSVP to events and information on grants, grantees and other new items for the organization.

Last but not least, please email us at with any questions or to receive information about our members, membership or rsvp-ing to an event.

Thank you!

Turning generous spirits into effective givers
