Women in Philanthropy Members Celebrate Another Successful Year
Annual WIP Members' Celebration

United Way’s Women in Philanthropy is a group of local women dedicated to ensuring foster youth throughout our community are prepared for and successful in their futures. This month, Women in Philanthropy members celebrated the program’s accomplishments while recognizing new and current members at their annual members celebration.

This year alone, Women in Philanthropy raised over $115,000. To date, they have raised $1.8 million to support local foster youth!

See why and how Women in Philanthropy is supporting local foster teens

At the recent Women in Philanthropy Luncheon, we unveiled a video that illustrates the struggles foster youth go through as they approach adulthood and what United Way is doing to change the lives for these local teens. As you’ll see in the video, with your support, we CAN positively affect the outcomes for hundreds of youth in our region.

A special thank you to Ranch Creative Services and one of our program partners, Koinonia Homes for Teens where the video was filmed.
