Founded on passion and experience. What started out as an idea between six women to host a fundraising Luncheon has evolved into a thriving collective giving organization.
Our approach is proven and powerful. We've awarded over 600 grants and scholarships to support Spokane women and children.
Learn, grow, and give together. Whether it's a donation drive, site tour, podcast episode, or volunteer shift- you're sure to feel more connected to your community.
Together, we're a growing group of local, engaged, and strategic givers. We build community, fund solutions, support scholars, and produce data and research.
Our Mission & Vision
Empowering Spokane area women and children to achieve their full potential, by building a strong, diverse community of engaged, and strategic givers.
We envision a healthy, safe and vibrant community where women and children flourish.
