At our first annual meeting, 132 founding members voted to award $100,000 to Furniture Sharehouse. Grants were also given to Yonkers Partners in Education, Clay Art Center and Something Good in the World.
Our mission is to engage women in philanthropy and collectively fund grants to charitable initiatives in the Westchester region. The goal is to identify unmet needs in the region and provide transformational grants to Westchester not-for-profit organizations.
In addition to funding projects, our solicitation process, rigorous review and evaluation of grant proposals will raise awareness of many worthwhile charitable organizations while inspiring our members to become more personally involved with these charities.
