The inaugural WHWF Luncheon hosted in 1993 raised over $80,000 for local support programs. Since then, our supporters have raised more than $6 million, which has funded over 500 programs focused on the issues faced by women and children.
While the event may look different in 2021, we are committed to bringing back the in-person event as soon as it is safe for all participants.
We've had the opportunity to hear from many inspirational speakers at our Annual Benefit Luncheon. Take a peek at the full list of speakers here.
Resiliency Campaign and Virtual Event
We were disappointed that we could not gather in person at the 2020 Annual Luncheon and sincerely appreciate the support of the Luncheon replacement—the Women Helping Women Resiliency Campaign. 100% of the funds raised were given directly to our 2020-2021 grantees.
On May 19, 2020 we hosted our very first livestream event with emcee Kris Crocker, 4 News Now. We provided an update from the 2019 State of Women and Children Report followed by an important conversation with Maid author, Stephanie Land. Together, we discussed impactful moments from her memoir as well as the new adaption of her work for the Netflix new release.
We are grateful to all of our former Giving Circles members who have made a significant difference in the lives of women and children. You made it possible to move forward the work of Women Helping Women Fund.
Starting this year, we are offering a more impactful way to be involved with our new collective giving community that will allow you to magnify your impact and take an active role in local philanthropy while improving the lives of women and children in Spokane County.
Women Helping Women Week
Women Helping Women Week is a week-long public awareness campaign to uplift, recognize, support and celebrate fellow women in our community from all walks of life.
The women of our community are the future of Spokane, with the potential to achieve the highest levels of education, thrive in their careers, set and reach their goals, and empower future generations to continue these legacies. For this reason, Women Helping Women Fund has created this week of celebrating women locally. It all kicks off on International Women's Day on March 8, 2021.
Women Helping Women Fund hosts educational and networking events throughout the year to support our mission to advance women and their families. Your participation, sponsorship or generous gift is an investment in women, girls and families, empowering them to make better communities and a better Spokane.
