Success Story

15th Annual Women in Philanthropy Luncheon was a BIG Success!
Members and guests raised over $47,000 for local foster youth programs

Women in Philanthropy members and guests came together for another successful Women in Philanthropy Luncheon! More than 250 guests  raised money for United Way’s foster youth programs and celebrated the amazing work that makes a difference in the lives of local foster youth. It was a real treat to see the teens strutting their stuff and gaining confidence during the fashion show.

See how and why 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 Light Media Productions and one of our program partners, Koinonia Homes for Teens.
