This isn't the first time WHWF employees, Geneva Johns and Heather Hamlin, have worked side by side.
"We worked together years ago at Greater Spokane Incorporated and quickly discovered that our skillsets and passions are aligned. It was a no brainer when we got the chance to tackle something new together", said Heather.
Women Helping Women Fund is on a mission to improve the lives of women and children through the power of collective giving. It's a new philanthropy model for the Spokane region and championed across the country by Philanos. As the sole employees of WHWF, these two work closely with the Board of Directors on grantmaking, fundraising, and connecting donors directly with nonprofits.
"We definitely stay busy here at WHWF but it's exciting to work on projects we are passionate about all while singing the praises of local nonprofits. We get to have a lot of fun too. I got married this summer and we shut down the office to celebrate", said Geneva.
