Who We Fund
Women Helping Women Fund provides funds to programs in the Spokane community that ensure women and children have opportunities to reach their highest potential.
We believe that when women succeed, we all succeed.
As one of the few funding organizations in the Spokane community committed to raising and awarding funds to non-profit programs, we help make this possible. WHWF promotes and funds programs that remove the social, economic and educational barriers preventing women from reaching their full intellectual and vocational potential.
We believe in pooling money to create a bigger impact.
Since 1992, we have awarded over $6 million to 600 programs focused on the issues faced by women and children. We’ve achieved these results by consolidating resources, efforts and funds, and empowering the community to be change agents by supporting our women and children.
We believe in careful allocations and real results.
Our allocations process ensures that there are demonstrable results achieved by programs receiving funds. Board and volunteers are deeply involved in research and site visits to the programs. We ensure that the money we’re granting is going to the best use, and we require data to ensure the success of the program.
